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 Amanda M. from VT 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.
Amanda M.:  The noodles had a firm yet tender texture. The first thing you taste when eating the noodles is a meaty flavor. The peppery taste appears as you chew. Oddly, these noodles are spicy after you eat them. The noodles are very tingly on your lips!
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)?
Amanda M.:  The shin noodles would be very nice cooked and included in a stir fry meal. I think adding a spoon of peanut butter to the hot noodle cup would give it a Thai inspired flavor and tame the spiciness.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Amanda M.:  I liked that the Shin cup noodles had mushrooms in them. It is a nice change of pace from what is usually found in other noodles.
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.
Amanda M.:  I used the microwave preparation method. It was very simple. After opening the noodles and pouring in the soup base I added water to the fill line and microwaved for 3 minutes. It was very easy.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Amanda M.:  I would consider the Shin noodles to be a medium heat. The heat is not overwhelming as you eat but it does leave a spicy tingle behind.
