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 Rose K. from WI 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.
Rose K.:  The noodles are smooth, a bit more firm than I usually like. The flavor of the sauces is absorbed by the noodles. The sauce itself is not clearly beef/chicken/shrimp the way ramen is. It is slightly salty, and I can taste the vegetables. The spice does not hit until after you swallow, and although not unbearable, it does overpower the flavor.
“The flavor of this Shin Cup is very unique”
— Rose K.,  WI
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)?
Rose K.:  To enhance the Shin Cup, I would add meats and/or vegetables or even something as simple as oyster crackers to add a little crunch. I would also enjoy the sauce from this cup on white or jasmine rice.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Rose K.:  Compared to other ramen, the Shin Cup has an intriguing flavor. Rather than being straightforward (and overly salty) chicken, beef, or shrimp, this seems to be a blend of many flavors, plus a kick of spice.
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.
Rose K.:  The Shin Cup is extremely easy and convenient to prepare, needing only some water added and a microwave to cook. The noodles are then ready to eat right in the cup, no additional bowl needed.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Rose K.:  The flavor of this Shin Cup is very unique, it has an interesting blend of flavors at first, with a spicy zing that comes after.

Thank you for your time, Rose K.! We love your feedback.
