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 Mary W. from KS 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.
Mary W.:  The broth is a beautiful blend of a red chili pepper and additional spices to give it a nice flavor. The Noodles have a great texture and are very plentiful in the soup. It is a very nice spicy soup with excellent flavors blended together.
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)?
Mary W.:  This soup would be an excellent to add some grilled chicken or another grilled meat to make it a full meal. I could also see using it with some grilled vegetables to make it an even a heartier soup.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Mary W.:  What I really liked about this brand was that the noodles were fresh and plentiful. The flavor had a good spice but was not overpowering. It is an excellent value for the price.
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.
Mary W.:  I prepared the soup using the hot water method. It was a very easy process and I had a very hearty lunch in under five minutes.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Mary W.:  The product has some very nice hot spices, but it is not overwhelming. This soup really has a good blend of spices.
“It is an excellent value for the price.”
