Sama Sama Kitchen

Sama Sama Kitchen shares some DNA with other State Street staple restaurants: It's a bright space lined with light wood with a massive backyard patio covered in vines and string lights. But this eclectic Indonesian spot isn’t just another place to bring your picky aunt who always orders the chicken. It’s where you cover your table in dishes like crispy rice salad, sweet and spicy mie goreng, and banana donut fritters. Their wings smothered in a tamarind-soy barbecue sauce are fried to perfection and exactly what you want in a drinking snack. You could just drop by the bar and order a white negroni with a date, but we can't imagine coming here without sharing at least a couple small plates, too.
