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 Sophia P. from TN 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.
Sophia P.:  The broth is, of course, very spicy. I like the way the broth tastes outside of the spice, because I can still taste the flavor. The texture of the noodles are soft, but not mushy as some may get when heated up. Overall the taste is flavorful.
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)?
Sophia P.:  I would add fresh vegetables and pieces of grilled chicken breast.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Sophia P.:  Those noodles didn't get mushy like other Ramon does. It has an authentic taste - like a restaurant.
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.
Sophia P.:  It was easy to prepare and very convenient. I just took the lid off, added the base flavor packet it came with and filled it up with water. Then I put it in the microwave for 3 minutes.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Sophia P.:  If you like spicy foods, then you will definitely like this. It is like a very hot buffalo wing level of spicy! Keep some water or juice on the side and you will be able to enjoy the whole cup.
“It has an authentic taste - like a restaurant.”
