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 Ilene M. 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.
Ilene M.:  I prepared this with the hot water method and ate this right from the cup. The noodles are just the right texture, not too hard or too mushy. It's spicy but tolerably delicious. Can definitely taste the beef and green onion flavors.
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)?
Ilene M.:  I prefer it as is because its definitely great for a "tide-over" between meals. Would also consider accompanying the Shin Cup with an eggroll.
“I like that there's "depth" to the flavors with the spicy kick.”
— Ilene M.,  TX
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Ilene M.:  I like that there's "depth" to the flavors with the spicy kick. I like the texture of the noodles, not too hard or too mushy.
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.
Ilene M.:  I used the hot water method, personally I think that does more justice than the microwave. For convenience though it's good to have the microwave option for on-the-go, i.e. at work. Easy to prepare like any other cup noodles.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Ilene M.:  The heat level, (1-10, 10 being spiciest) I would say is about 7. It definitely has a kick but allows you to enjoy the noodles.

Thank you for your time, Ilene M.! We love your feedback.
