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.
“The noodles and the broth pair perfectly.”

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.
