SGV - Pho ga?

I've some friends who are under the weather with upper respiratory infections - stuffy heads, sore throats, coughs, etc. - and I'd like to take them some good Pho ga.
At least I *think* that's what I want to take them - that's the Vietnamese chicken soup, right? They're vegetarians, but do eat poultry.
I'm in Pasadena, they're in north San Gabriel - where should I go to get their soup? And is there anything else I should pick-up at the restaurant, in addition to the soup, that you think they might enjoy?
Well, if they eat chicken, then they're certainly not vegetarians! They're what - chickatarians? But that's one of my favorite things when I'm sick too. If you go to Golden Deli on Las Tunas, you could also pick up some nice spring rolls.
Another suggestion to the excellent ones already posted is one closer to Pasadena: Vietnam Delicious, located in the Food Court next to Full House at the 99 Ranch shopping center, corner of Duarte Road and Golden West.
Thanks for the recommendations - I'll be heading out this afternoon and am already salivating.
I've another question or two, if y'all don't mind:
1 - If I order Pho ga, is it safe for me to assume that the broth will be chicken-based and that the toppings won't contain beef or pork?
2 - Are there any sides/appetizers/starters that are vegetarian (or whatever the correct term is for people that don't eat mammals but do eat fowl and seafood) safe?
