A little bit of the Philippines comes to the Central Coast

A Lompoc couple have opened the first Filipino restaurant on the Central Coast, launching Samantha’s, 910 North H St., with a grand opening April 16.

Warren and Lida Steele said they wanted to introduce authentic Filipino cuisine to the Lompoc Valley, offering such traditional favorites as chicken adobo, a fried rice and chicken dish, and pansit and lumpia, noodles and a roll, similar to and egg roll, along with less familiar items such as Halo Halo, a dessert made from shaved ice, tropical fruit and cream.

This is the only Filipino restaurant from Oxnard to Salinas, said Warren. Already, customers have traveled from Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, Buellton and Santa Ynez, and were given free samples to help the diners make menu choices. - Lompoc Record
