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 Judy L. from MD 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.
Judy L.:  The broth has fiery spicy overtones that leaves your mouth with a warm sensation. The noodles have a smooth texture and are abundant in the soup. The combination of noodles and broth remind me of my favorite carry out hot and spicy soup.
