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 Marilyn H. 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.
Marilyn H.:  With the first taste of the soup, the wonderful spicy flavor of the chillis were the most prevalent sensation; the heat was exactly the right degree. The noodles had a firm and velvety texture and were the perfect offset to the spiciness. In the background is a very flavorful beef broth with subtle hints of mushrooms.
“Rich and flavorful.”

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)?
Marilyn H.:  The soup provides a fantastic base for tofu, which would absorb the spicy flavor. Adding some fresh vegetables, particularly bok choi or snow peas, would make this a complete meal. Also, slices of shitake mushrooms would enhance the earthy undertones of the soup.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Marilyn H.:  I am a lover of spicy foods, and this soup was certainly very spicy without being too hot. The flavor was more intense and intricate than most ramen soups.
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.
Marilyn H.:  I prepared the soup by adding water and heating it in a microwave. It was quick and easy, although I did serve it in a bowl because I feel this makes the meal special.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Marilyn H.:  This is not a soup for those who do not love spicy food. This soup is hot, but it is rich and flavorful as well. The noodles are the perfect balance to the spiciness.

Thank you for your time, Marilyn H.! We love your feedback.
