Over the last five years, La Mar has become San Francisco's premier source for authentic Peruvian cuisine which is prepared by Chef Diego Oka. Chef Oka, now 30 years old, is a native of Peru and has Japanese ancestry. Intrigued by the culinary arts at an early age, his career has spanned two continents, plus he has represented Peru at a gastronomical summit in Madrid, helped win first place at the Girotonno competition in Cerdeña, Italy, and participated in food festivals in Japan and the United States. Oka was part of the team that opened the first La Mar Cebichería in Lima, Peru, and has subsequently done the same in Mexico City and Bogotá.
La Mar Cebichería Peruana is located on Pier 1½, on the Embarcadero across from Washington Street, in San Francisco, California.
