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 Angie J from TN 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.
Angie J:  The first flavor I noticed is like a jalepeno, peppery spice. The broth is definitely very spicy, but flavorful. The spice is almost overpowering. The texture of the noodles is soft, but not so soft that they are falling apart.
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)?
Angie J:  I would add vegetables to it to enhance it and cut the spices some, or even add some chicken or pork to it. I would make dinner rolls or garlic bread with it.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Angie J:  I liked the spice of the Shin Cup, though it was a bit overwhelmingly spicy to be a meal. The Shin Cup differs from other ramen that I have tried in that it is much more flavorful and spicy, though lacking in vegetables. I would love to add peas or corn to this cup.
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.
Angie J:  I prepared the Shin Cup exactly as directed on the cup, microwaving for 3 minutes with room temperature water. This cup was very easy to prepare and will be very convenient on the go. I would be glad to take this cup to work for lunch.
“ I would be glad to take this cup to work for lunch.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Angie J:  I would describe the level of general spiciness as extremely spicy and not for the faint of heart. You must definitely enjoy spice to enjoy this cup.

Thank you for your time, Angie J! We love your feedback.
