Maybe you had a bad day at work, or perhaps your significant other’s snoring kept you up all night. No matter the reason, El Tina is where you should eat in Inwood when you just want to be left alone. Well, alone with your thoughts and a $6 bowl of soup - a light chowder packed with crab and fish. Sit at the diner counter in the tiny space underneath the 1 train at 207th Street, eat some soup and a side of plantains, and remind yourself to pick up nasal strips on your way home.
