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 Deborah M. 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.
Deborah M.:  Warm comforting broth that when it first hit my tongue was spicy but than it intensified. The broth had a nice chili and mushroom flavor. The noodles were just right, not too mushy. I loved the green onions nice touch.
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)?
Deborah M.:  This would be great with some big shrimp or some veggie chicken mixed in to make a more complete meal. After cooking, the noodles can be removed from the cup and stir-fried with whatever protein I choose.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Deborah M.:  This was very easy to make. I lived in Japan for two years and as I was eating I was getting true authentic flavor, not bland at all from other brands I've tried.
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.
Deborah M.:  I was able to boil the water and let it sit while I got changed after work I came back to the kitchen and it was ready to go. Super easy.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Deborah M.:  Not for the faint of heart this has got a kick to it that can be controlled through the flavor packet. It's a good spicy. Not just hot but also lots of flavor.
