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 Cristal C. from OR 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.
Cristal C.:  First thing I taste is beef, kinda different than the other ramens I have tasted. Noodles have a bit of a bite to them which is always good no soggy noodles. At the end you do get a bit of heat that coming from the spice packet. Overall will eat these again.
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)?
Cristal C.:  Something that would elevate this would be more green herbs and maybe a bit less salt. I would mostly likely add some cooked chicken and an egg. Yummm.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Cristal C.:  I like that it doesn't taste like a preserved soul. With some added fresh ingredients, you could make this a high end fancy ramen.
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.
Cristal C.:  I would use hot water instead of microwaving it that way you get your noodles just how you want them. This is a super easy and convenient way to eat ramen. Took maybe 3 minutes to cook.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Cristal C.:  Ramen does have a bit of spicy but not over powering. Does have a bit of a kick at the end, but not enough to cover the authentic taste of the noodles.
