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 Christy G. from ME 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.
Christy G.:  The broth tasted sweet at first then a little heat hits, which is lovely. The shiitake mushrooms reconstitute perfectly with a nice texture. The noodles are a little al denes which is nice, not mushy. The noodles and the broth pair perfectly.
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)?
Christy G.:  I would add more mushrooms and some shrimp to the cup. I would also use the broth as a flavoring for a stir fry and serve over the cooked noodles.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Christy G.:  I liked the mushrooms the best. The quality of the mushrooms was much better than other ramen I have tried.

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.
Christy G.:  I prepared the Shin cup in the microwave. It was very convenient and easy to prepare to take on the go and using the microwave did not sacrifice flavor.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Christy G.:  The level of heat is moderate, very nicely spicy without being overbearing.

Thank you for your time, Christy G.! We love your feedback.
