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.
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.
“The flavor of this Shin Cup is very unique”
— Rose K.,  WI
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.
