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 Meredith W. from NY 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.
Meredith W.:  The broth was spicy, but still very flavorful at the same time- it was not just tasteless heat. It tasted slightly smoky. The noodles were a nice consistency, not too firm or mushy. They absorbed the flavor of the broth very well.
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)?
Meredith W.:  I would love to add some fresh vegetables, sliced meat (such as pork), or especially a poached egg.
“I would describe it has having a flavorful heat.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Meredith W.:  I liked that the sodium content was not quite as high per container as other brands. I also liked the spicy flavor more than I expected to.
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.
Meredith W.:  Preparing the cup was extremely convenient. I just put some hot water in and let it sit as instructed. I liked that I didn't have to dirty one of my own bowls to use this product, since it is cooked in the package. Preparing this on-the-go seems very convenient.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Meredith W.:  I would describe the product as fairly spicy, but not overpoweringly so. I would describe it as having a flavorful heat.

Thank you for your time, Meredith W.! We love your feedback.
