This bright, modern restaurant downtown is serving the kind of Indonesian-fusion you might not expect to find in a town that believes burritos are meant to be eaten for all three meals of the day. Sama Sama is a tad pricey, but the food is damn good and unlike anything else in Santa Barbara. Put down that quesadilla and go grab a bowl of their jidori wings instead.
