Gourmet Spicy Shin Cup

Deliciously spicy and perfectly affordable, the Nongshim Shin Cup is an ideal pick for on-the-go eating. You’ll love the bright, satisfying heat and mix of flavors in this gourmet ramen. It’s a quick-prepare soup that’s just as good at home (with extras like a cracked egg and veggies) as it is on your lunch break (ready in a flash). All you have to do is wait for 3 minutes — stir well + serve. These shin cups are versatile and so simple to make.

We talked to Ann V from VA about NONGSHIM, and here is what she had to say:

Q: Describe the different flavor notes that you taste in the broth, the texture of the noodles, and overall taste of the noodles in the broth.
Ann V:  The hearty and sizable portion of noodles held the overall taste of the broth very well. The broth flavor was that of a mild, to slightly spicy, chili or cayenne pepper. The overall heat of the spices remains well after the bite has been swallowed. The noodles held their consistency and integrity throughout, not falling apart at all and continued to absorb the spicy flavor of the broth, while I let the bowl cool off.
Q: How would you choose to enhance your mealtime experience of the Shin Cup (e.g. what would you add to it, or what recipes would you make with it)?
Ann V:  I would add cooked ground pork or beef to the noodles. This would be a good appetizer dish to a Kung Pao chicken dinner.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Ann V:  The Shin Cup is much more flavorful compared to the Ramen noodles. As the noodles sat in the bowl they became more and more flavorful. For people who enjoy spicy foods this would hit the mark! The shin cup appears to be a more upscale version of a Ramen noodle.

Q: Describe how you prepared the Shin Cup, the level of convenience in preparing it, and your thoughts on its ease of preparation on-the-go.
Ann V:  The Shin cup was extremely easy to fix. After removing lid, I added the soup base and water. I then cooked it in the microwave for 5 1/2 minutes. After stirring thoroughly I begin to enjoy the noodles.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Ann V:  I would recommend this product to someone who enjoys spicy food. It was a bit too spicy for my taste, but my husband, who loves spicy food, enjoyed it immensely!

Thank you for your time, Ann V! We love your feedback.
