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 Christina C. from TX 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.
Christina C.:  The noodles are soft, almost delicate, swimming in a smooth bold broth. The Shin noodle soup has a heat that sits on your lips, but not too spicy.
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)?
Christina C.:  I would love to try the shin noodle soup over medium rare sliced beef with crunchy sprouts or pickled ginger.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Christina C.:  I enjoyed the Shin noodle soup. The noodles are tender and the broth is smooth and bold. It has a heat that sits nicely on the lips.
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.
Christina C.:  I used the microwave instructions. Very easy and convenient. 3 steps- 1- remove lid. 2- fill with water. 3- heat for 3 minutes. Being able to microwave this cup is a plus. Other cups do not give you that option.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Christina C.:  It has a level of 4 on the heat scale. The spice sits on your lips and dissipates slowly.
“It has a heat that sits nicely on the lips.”
