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 jean H. from TX 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.
jean H.:  Although the soup is spicy, the broth is more mild and earthy than I was expecting. I taste green onions and mushrooms and the noodles have a nice bite to them. The noodles hold up well in the broth, rather than getting mushy like some other ramen style soups do.
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)?
jean H.:  I would marinate some flank steak, do a quick stir fry, slice and add to the soup. Topped with green onions and toasted cashews would taste great as well.
“I liked the noodles the best.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
jean H.:  I liked the noodles the best. Rather than getting mushy in the broth they held up well and had a nice bite to the end.
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.
jean H.:  I prepared the Shin Cup in the microwave. This was very convenient, especially for those on-the-go.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
jean H.:  The spiciness is definitely higher than average. I'd probably rate it a 7 out of 10.

Thank you for your time, jean H.! We love your feedback.
