Homeland Inspiration

Founder Andres Andrade gives the back-story to West Auckland’s South American food experience, Mar & Tierra at Street Feast.

“Throughout the years of living and working in the hospitality industry of New Zealand, always missing our flavours of our homeland, we saw a huge opportunity in the food market for authentic South American culture."

We feel that it is our mission to bring our flavours to New Zealand for locals, visitors, and of course SouthAmericans.

We are a strong business team formed by a professional administrator with extensive experience managingvery successful venues in hospitality and other high-profile businesses, and two professional chefs who notonly have comprehensive experience of South American cuisine, but have also worked in Australia and NewZealand, consequently we have a good understanding of how the international and Australasian marketworks.

We met in New Zealand and found that we all have the same Latin origins. We took that as a sign to createsomething that New Zealand hasn’t seen, a mixture of seafood freshly sourced from Auckland’s premier fishmarket, and the best South American style cuts of meat offering our target market the opportunity to tasteour take on Latin flavours.

We found an opportunity where we can showcase our interpretation of South American cuisine and culture and bring it to Titirangi.”
