The art of pairing, how to pair kobe beef?

Eating steak in Cancun is an unforgettable experience for any foodie. Chambao Cancun offers a wide variety of options to try different cuts and types of meat. But what happens when you want to experience something really special and unique? That's where Kobe beef plays a special role. 

Kobe beef is a variety of beef from Japan, known for its mild flavor, tender texture and wonderful marbling. 

Its price is significantly higher than other beef varieties due to its production process and the specific feeding the animals receive. However, if you are willing to pay a little more, the experience of tasting Kobe beef is truly unforgettable. 

One of the best places to try Kobe beef in Cancun is Chambao, a restaurant specialized in steak cuts and seafood. Here are some suggestions for pairing.


  1. Red wine, a good red wine is the classic pairing for any type of steak cut. For Kobe beef, we recommend a wine with body and structure such as a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Malbec. Don't forget to ask our sommelier to recommend something according to your tastes and preferences.
  2. Whiskey, if you’re a spirits lover, a good whisky is also an excellent option to pair with Kobe beef. The smoky flavor and complexity of the whiskey complements the delicacy of the meat. 
  3. Beer, if you prefer something refreshing, a cold beer is also a great choice. A dark, strong beer such as a Stout or Porter is ideal.   


The key to food pairing is to find a balance between the flavors of the dishes and beverages. You don't have to be an expert to achieve a good pairing, just follow your instincts and try different combinations until you find the one you like the most.
