  1. Try SEA Restaurant on Commercial, just west of A1A. Great fish, reasonable prices.

    1. Hot & Soul might also fit the bill...they have some awesome vegan and pescatarian options on both the regular, specials, and brunch menu.

        thanks it doesn't have to be a seafood restaurant...just anything that is really tasty offering even great side dishes other than red meat/chicken.

      2. Have you ever been to Marumi. It's right in your backyard yet often overlooked.

          I totally agree...Marumi is hands down my favorite sushi / Japanese restaurant in South Florida!

        2. Lobster Bar Sea Grille is probably the best all round restaurant in FLL right now.

          1. I haven't tried it yet, but there's a Vietnamese place that opened about a year ago on University Dr, north of Sunset Strip. Oddly named - Pho Brandon, but probably worth a look :) Also, El Avave Azul opened another restaurant at the SW corner of University and Nova drive.

              Pho Brandon is great!!! I've eaten there a few times and it's always fantastic. The service is a little clunky though. There's usually only one guy(owner?) and he runs around like crazy trying to do everything. Food usually comes out quick, but getting a water glass refilled takes some time. The Green Papaya Salad is a must get but be careful because it's a pretty large portion as are most of the items we've tried. We usually go home with enough for lunch the next day!!!

                I wasn't a big fan of El Agave Azul. Maybe it was just the stuff we got, but we haven't had the motivation to go back. It's setup buffet/cafeteria style and everything is already cooked. I've been to the west coast and seen this done properly. Everything was just kinda flat.

                  I like EAA's sopes (the veg option with champinones & chile de arbol,) but most of the people I've brought there have shared your feelings about the place. Still, I'm glad I can get horchata and tamarind agua fresca in my neighborhood.

                  Thanks for the info about Pho Brandon, I'll check it out.
