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 Amanda W. from UT 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.
Amanda W.:  The soup is spicy, but not too spicy. The broth is very oniony, with hints of green onion taste. The noodles are fresh and not slimy.
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)?
Amanda W.:  I normally poach 2-3 eggs and mix them with my noodles. Just for a bit more protein to make my meal last longer.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Amanda W.:  It had more noodles than other ramen cups. I also like that the it is not made of styrofoam.
“The soup is spicy, but not too spicy.”

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.
Amanda W.:  I used a water kettle to heat water and added it to the cup. I let it sit for 3 minutes. It was simple to prepare.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Amanda W.:  On a scale of 1-10, the heat is maybe a 6/7 just above mild but not overpowering.

Thank you for your time, Amanda W.! We love your feedback.
