Crab Soup at El Tina Fish Market Corporation, Inwood

Right outside the 207 st subway attached to the market is the eating counter. The specialty here is fried fish done in what I take to be island fashion, a bit dry for my taste. Most of those seated are also having the great "power" soup, which on a lucky fluke I tried one day and got a wow. It is full of enough crab and fish to be a stew, I usually have a side of plantains to round out a lunch.

    Thanks so much for the downlow on this place, wewwew. I've walked by a few times, never tried it. Very helpful report!

    Was the soup by any chance made with fresh crab? How fresh was the fried fish?

      Sorry for the delay in responding, I was eating away from the computer, a misdemeanor in some areas. The crab I don't know. The fried fish depended on kind of fish I was told. It sure tasted fresh.
      Again, please try the soup.

        I don't make that a crime. Appreciate the rare uptown tip, which was picked up by Chow ... http://www.chow.com/digest/120482/sea...
