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 Sandy S. 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.
Sandy S.:  I taste spicy carrot and beef flavors. The texture of the noodles is firm but a touch chewy. The overall taste of the noodles in the broth is good and flavorful with the spicy beef and carrot flavors mixed all 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)?
Sandy S.:  I would add pieces of dried shrimp or beef to the cup so that it is more filling. I would also use the noodles with flavor packet as a stir-fry and add some broccoli and cooked shrimp.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Sandy S.:  I like that it had a good amount of noodles and flavoring. The noodles in this cup differ from others in that they are firmer and not mushy.
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.
Sandy S.:  I put the packet of flavor inside the cup. Then I filled the cup with water up to the line inside. I removed the lid and put in microwave as directed. It was pretty easy to prepare and eat. I like I can take on the go.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Sandy S.:  I would describe the spiciness as just right. I would also describe the heat as medium, in between a little and a lot.
“I would describe the spiciness as just right.”
