Spiciest food found in Jamaica, Queens

I have a knack for finding delicious spicy foods, but the Village Voice may have closed in on the spiciest in the city. “Putting others to shame,” the West African Pepper Shrimp at Maima’s in Jamaica, Queens is “mouth-searing, mind-bogglingly-hot.”  The shrimp are crunchy and topped with an orange-flavored sauce, but with a (big) kick. Maima’s is the only Liberian restaurant in NYC, and is located in a residential neighborhood near JFK airport.

Visit the eatery at 106-47 Guy Brewer Boulevard, and make sure to stop by space for lease 89-14 Parsons Boulevard to see the new development Moda.
