Map & Details>>

Maima's, a cheerful spot a few blocks south of downtown Jamaica, is the city's only Liberian restaurant, run by immigrants from a country founded by slaves freed after the American Civil War. Specialties you should try include "dry rice" (not dry in the least, cooked with okra and bitter ball?a type of eggplant), pepper shrimp (made incendiary with the spice called grains of paradise), plantain fufu, and mixed-meat soup. 106-47 Guy R. Brewer Boulevard, Queens, 718-206-3538
