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 Eunji K. from IN 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.
Eunji K.:  The broth itself has a good flavor, but with a subtle spicy taste that builds. I made the noodles a bit undercooked, so that there would be a bite to them as I ate them. The texture of the noodles fit well with the savory broth.
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)?
Eunji K.:  I would use less of the soup base, add fresh green onions and perhaps an egg. I would also add a bit of spam.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Eunji K.:  I liked how easy it was to make and the texture of the noodles. The spicy broth is more subtle than other ramen I have tried.
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.
Eunji K.:  I boiled water in a pot, then poured it into the cup of ramen and waited about 2 minutes. It was quite simple and on the go.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Eunji K.:  Its level of heat and general spiciness is subtle, but it builds.
“The texture of the noodles fit well with the savory broth.”
