i'm in hollywood and work in pasadena. anywhere close by or in between is fine - they need to be vegetarian.

    I was at Absolutely Phobulous on Lacienega b/t Melrose and Beverly (down the block from Trashy Lingerie) and while the pho is not as rich and great as the ones down in Little Saigon, it was surprisingly good. Their summer rolls were pretty delicious as well. If you call ahead, I'm sure they can have it ready with all the fixings.

      Ditto on Ab Pho, agreed this is my spot when I do not want to trek downtown or to the OC.

        Also in Atwater Village, across the street from Indochine, is Viet Noodle Bar. Their summer rolls are very tasty, and cheap, too!

            this may be too late, but... Saladang in Pasadena has "salad rolls" on its menu and, IMO, is very similar to what you are looking for...
