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 Deborah M 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.
Deborah M:  I taste red Chile oil, perhaps in the sauce. With maybe a chicken base. The texture of the noodles is perfect for me, smooth and not rubbery. They soak up the perfect amount of flavor from the broth.
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)?
Deborah M:  I would add cooked shredded chicken or diced tofu to add protein. I do not think it would affect flavor as it is quite rich. This would be great with a side of egg rolls.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Deborah M:  I like most that the cup has carrots, green onions, and mushrooms. It is different from other ramen in that it tastes more like made from scratch.

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.
Deborah M:  I prepared the cup in the microwave. It was very convenient, just add water. I like that it is such a large serving.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Deborah M:  I would say this is medium-high heat. The spices are quite flavorful.

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