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 Sarah R. from NC 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.
Sarah R.:  The noodles are tender and juicy, and combined with the broth they create a complex soup with with many different the flavors and textures. There are hints of carrot and mushrooms, and the crispy vegetables pieces are a delicious contrast to the noodles.
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)?
Sarah R.:  This ramen would taste phenomenal with some crisp broccoli added to it and served alongside a fresh meat, deli sandwich.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Sarah R.:  I like the deep flavor of the broth. There were many different vegetable flavors that made me feel like I was eating ramen from a restaurant.
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.
Sarah R.:  I microwaved this cup for three minutes after adding room temperature tap water to the fill line. It was very easy to make, and took little to no effort. It took about 7 minutes to cool down after I cooked it, and then it was ready eat!
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Sarah R.:  The level of heat is high. It is very spicy, and probably wouldn't be good for those who don't like spicy food. But it is great for those who do!
