Ocean Deep
Ocean Deep is just that; a culinary journey to savour a mind-blowing menu of innovative Nikkei cuisine mixing traditional Peruvian ingredients with Japanese favourites. This is healthy food that oozes vibe. Paired with a refreshing restaurant design, the decor, the menu, the lighting, the tableware, the music all combine to tease the senses and leave you wanting to return again and again. It helps that almost every table has fantastic ocean views, but even without them, Ocean Deep is all about atmosphere, creativity and sustainability. Well, that and the food, because this globally-inspired cuisine from the shores of Peru is certainly worth raving about. With a picture-perfect setting, this unique restaurant is as scenic as it is delicious.

The origins of this little known culinary fusion, known as Nikkei cuisine, dating back to 1889, when nearly 7,000 Japanese miners and railroad workers, lured by the promise of jobs, travelled to Peru. With a yearning for home cuisine, they began cooking Japanese food with the Peruvian ingredients that were available to them, resulting in unique dishes that combine the simplicity and precision of Japanese culinary techniques with the Andean tubers, chillies, and fresh seafood of Peru. Today Peru is home to the second largest Japanese population in South America. As the Japanese population has settled and proliferated, Nikkei has grown into a dominating culinary force, and now features in some of the worlds top 50 restaurants, donned with Michelin accolades and is rising on the international culinary scene.
