Comfort in a bowl

EL MALECÓN (4141 Broadway, at 175th Street) offers sopa de pollo ($4.50).

(The New York Times) The Dominican sopa de pollo ($4.50) is comfort in a bowl, with meat falling off the drumstick and thigh bones into a light-brown broth seasoned with cilantro and a bit of adobo. It’s made to order, in a way: Patrons can specify less yuca, more broth.
