Nigerian restaurant New Combo boldly offers American breakfast items like eggs and bagels, and a few English specialties like fish and chips as well. At the heart of the menu, however, are the mashes, soups, and meats that make up the vocabulary of most anglophone West African cooking. For the jaded eater of Nigerian food, certain specialties offered here may be more interesting. Moi moi is a fish-laced patty made of ground black-eyed-pea meal and fried in palm oil-fluffy, brown, and altogether tasty. Now farm-raised, the giant land snails known to taxonomists as Achatina achatina are unique to New Combo-black, winged, and as resilient as rubber bands.
