425 Westport Road
Sama Zama, the newest incarnation of the One Bite Japanese Grill, opened in the former Matsu's space at 425 Westport Road tomorrow.
The menu revolves around small plates of food (pot stickers, spring rolls and chicken/beef/shrimp skewers) and plenty of dipping sauces. Sama Zama is one of the few places in the city to feature Okonomi-yaki, a Japanese-style grilled pizza topped with a fried egg, and udon noodle bowls. The restaurant will also open with a full bar as owner Erika Koike has already secured a liquor license for the new location.
The restaurant's signature sauces (including a gluten-free and jalapeno teriyaki, Mogu Mogu cream sauce and Motto dumpling sauce) will continue to be sold under the One Bite name. And good news for those hanging on to One Bite gift cards: They will be honored in the Westport space.
Sama Zama is open Tuesday through Sunday. On Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, the hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. On Friday and Saturday, Sama Zama is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
