A new Indonesian eatery named Sama Sama Kitchen opens Tuesday March 19th at 1208 State Street, the former home of East restaurant. I am told that the food is Indonesian-inspired and that they are sourcing from local farms and markets. Sama Sama, which means “you’re welcome” in Indonesian, is owned by the head chef Ryan Simorangkir. He spent the last 3 years running a restaurant in Bali with his friend Tyler Peak, who will also be a chef at Sama Sama. There is a full bar but it is separately owned until they can take over the liquor license at the end of May. Hours are Tuesday – Saturday 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m., 5:30 p.m. – 10 p.m. and Sunday brunch 9 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. For more information call 453-8717 or visit facebook.com/samasamakitchen.
