Whither Sang Dao?

Last week I was all set to check out Sang Dao for Laotian cuisine. Luckily I called ahead to check if it was open and learned that the address and phone number have been taken over by Thai Hotpot. The woman on the phone said Sang Dao has been gone for a "long time". Who knows the story?

I checked the web and found some vague references to a Sang Dao in San Diego, but no Sang Dao listing anywhere in California. I found one mention of a Lao place on National Ave., which turns out to be Lao Chinese & Thai Cuisine, 4212 National Ave., San Diego, 619-263-0914, but no idea if this might be the same people.

Per Jonathan Gold's post linked below, this sounds like a local treasure. How did 'hounds lose track of it? Anyone know if Sang Dao has been reincarnated and where?
