Participating in this year's Choice Eats, the city's only Liberian restaurant, Maima's, might have gone mainstream, but the food is still the unreconstructed original, redolent of African Americans' being bounced back and forth between West Africa and North America for at least 250 years. Pepper shrimp is a wise choice, perhaps paired with "dry rice"—not desiccated in the least, it's stewed with okra and a type of eggplant called bitterball. Sounds very Harry Potter. 106-47 Guy R. Brewer Boulevard, Queens, 718-206-3538 (11433)
