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 Susan B. from PA 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.
Susan B.:  I can taste a bit of spicy peppery mushroom and onion flavor, the noodles are firm, but tender, and the broth has a rich and spicy flavor that is very flavorful. It is far more flavorful than the "competition" noodles in a cup product. This tasted far more authentic than the other brands.
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)?
Susan B.:  I would make these noodles and then drain the water completely, then add the seasoning packaging, a small bit of oil or butter, and then top it with some grilled chicken or shrimp to make it a more complete meal option.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Susan B.:  The Shin Cup is so much more flavorful than other ramen style or cup of noodles style products. I liked the noodles and the thicker chunkier vegetables in this soup.
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.
Susan B.:  I boiled water in a tea kettle on the stovetop, then added the boiled water to the cup, closed the paper over the top, and allowed to ‚Äúsit‚Äù for about 2 minutes. Then I opened the soup, and added the seasoning package. Then yum...ate the soup.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Susan B.:  I prefer spicy foods, this product to me is spicy, but not outrageous. However, if you prefer a blander flavor, this product is not that.
“This tasted far more authentic than the other brands.”
