How did Google do this?

A colleague was about to take a weekend trip to New York.

I was recommending various places for food. I remembered seeing an Anthony Bourdain show, and he recommended a hot dog place - I also remembered that it included Mango.

So, I typed into Google, new york hot dog mango, and it perfectly found the result I was looking for at the top of the list - Papaya King.

Thing is - the word "mango" appears nowhere on their web page. If you don't include the word mango in your search, Papaya King appears lower in the list.

Did Google link the words Mango and Papaya?
