Liberian? cuisine

My new favorite food is attieke. "Attieke is a staple starch of Ivorian cuisine (food of the Ivory Coast) ... it's a couscous-like grain made from grated, fermented cassava, and is often eaten with fish, either braised or fried."Pictures below. The restaurant that I go to eat attieke puts chopped tomatoes, onions, and cucumbers, and I usually have it with grilled chicken or fish.  MmmMmmm. Though it's from Ivory Coast, they serve it a lot in Liberia. Like I said in an earlier post, a lot of food served in Liberia is from other West African countries.
