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 Kristi H. from OK 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.
Kristi H.:  The broth is spicy, with a hint of chili. The noodles are firm, and hold onto the broth as you spoon. On their own, the noodles do not stick together outside of the broth. It is a pleasing bite. I loved that the vegetables that were large enough to be tasted.
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)?
Kristi H.:  I would like to add more vegetables and maybe some boiled egg to it to make it a fuller meal.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Kristi H.:  I liked that the noodles stood on their own, inside and outside of the broth. I liked that the noodles weren't sticky when outside of the broth.
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.
Kristi H.:  I cooked the Shin cup according to microwave directions. The process was super simple and the cup turned out as it should.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Kristi H.:  I would tell someone that it does have a higher level of spice than what they've ever tasted before in a ramen soup. It's not overwhelmingly spicy, but it does have more heat than most.
“It is a pleasing bite.”
