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 Heather M. from GA 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.
Heather M.:  I can taste the spiciness of the broth. The mushrooms also have a strong flavor in the soup. The broth is very smooth and blends in well with the overall dish. The noodles are just the right texture and taste for what I would expect ramen to be. They absorb the flavors of the broth.
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)?
Heather M.:  I would add some steamed broccoli, carrots and cauliflower. I may even add some grilled chicken and hard boiled egg to make it a full meal.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Heather M.:  I like the flavor of the Shin Ramen best. It tastes more aunthenic then other ramen I have tried. There is more flavors in this ramen as well.
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.
Heather M.:  I added boiled water in a tea kettle. Then added the water to the cup. I let it sit for about 5 minutes to really cook the ramen and soak in the flavors.
“It tastes more aunthenic then other ramen I have tried.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Heather M.:  It is a little on the spicy side. I would recommend not adding as much of the spice pack to tone down the flavor.

Thank you for your time, Heather M.! We love your feedback.
