Sama Sama Kitchen

Santa Barbara, California
Sama Sama blends traditional Indonesian ingredients and flavors with seasonal farmers’ market finds and fresh seafood. Menu standout gado gado is a mix of fresh vegetables, fried tofu, and shallots tossed with a delicate peanut sauce, while classic cocktails like the Bloody Mary are kicked up with lemongrass and kaffir lime. Owners Chris Sewell and Kenny Osehan—the duo behind the design-forward Ojai Rancho Inn and Hamlet Inn--bring a similar eye for detail to Sama Sama. The husband-and-wife team armed up what had been a previously unused deck by adding communal tables made of reclaimed wood.
