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 Val C. from FL 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.
Val C.:  It tastes like eating almost a kimchi with noodles. It's spicy, yet Asian vegetable savory flavor. It has a very classic Asian soup texture.
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)?
Val C.:  A great way to enhance meal time experience with the Shin Cup would be to add different types of mushrooms to it. Broaden the flavor so that it is not just a lot of onions, possibly add some bok choy or introduce other Asian vegetables to go with it's tangy taste.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Val C.:  More ingredients included like pieces of mushrooms. Also a spicy with tangy flavor and it's a nice cup to eat out of!
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.
Val C.:  I prepared the Shin Cup by boiling water with my rice maker, which didn't take long at all! Then I easily poured the water and it was done in less time than I expected. So it's great for lunch in a rush, easy to open too!
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Val C.:  I love spicy food and I am use to them. So if you're heat lover, I would describe it as the perfect amount of heat and tangy-savory-flavor.
