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 Debbie R. from AZ 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.
Debbie R.:  I love the texture and width of the noodles. The flavor of the broth is a little too spicy for my liking but I do like the tomato flavoring. If the spice level was just a notch lower, these noodles would be perfect. On the other hand, my teenage son tasted this and loved them. He usually just eats spicy ramen, but he said this was much better and had a lot more flavor then you standard ramen noodles.
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)?
Debbie R.:  I think adding roasted chicken breast would be wonderful. It would add some low fat protein and the chicken would absorb some of the broth which would be great.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Debbie R.:  I like the smaller width of the noodle. It also didn't have the same pasty consistency, which I dislike about most ramen 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.
Debbie R.:  I prepared the noodles in the microwave. It was fast and easy and I liked the fact that I didn't have any dirty dishes afterwards.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Debbie R.:  On a scale from 1-10, 5 being my preferred spice level (what I'd call a "little kick" of spice) this is as a 7.

Thank you for your time, Debbie R.! We love your feedback.
