Is there such a thing as Brooklyn Chinese? There is, if you listen to Wei Lee, who serves freshly fried shrimp wonton, brisket noodle soup and Hainan chicken rice (dark meat on the bone with seasoned rice), a specialty of Malaysia, at his new restaurant.

Most of the dishes are $5, and his mother’s own mushroom sausage rice is to die for.

House-Smoked Salmon Pizza, Spago

Wolfgang Puck pioneered the California-style pizza, using nouveau ingredients that go well beyond sausage and pepperoni. The smoked salmon pizza has been a mainstay at Spago throughout the years, but it’s not on the menu. A thin-crust pizza is built with crème fraîche and silky smoked salmon, then topped with an only-in-Beverly-Hills twist: caviar and gold leaf. Each bite is worth every penny—all 3,700 of ’em! $27, $37 (with caviar), in the Forum Shops at Caesars, 369-6300.
