If you and your friend like Vietnamese food, Saigon Cuisine is on Rt 441 in Margate and it's very good. Really good Pho and a wide variety of of other Vietnamese specialties from Banh Mi and a variety of noodle dishes to seafood rice cooked in a clay pot.
In the same plaza there's also a Mexican restaurant (El Zocalo) and a Roti shop (Shalama's.) Both are supposed to be very good but we've never tried them. We live in Boca so when we drive down to this plaza it's usually a Saigon Cuisine trip exclusively.
