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 Diana C. from CA 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.
Diana C.:  The broth tastes spicy and mostly has an umami like flavor and a nice stock base. The noodles rehydrate well with the broth; the noodles have a simple taste that matches well with the spice of the broth. The vegetable rehydrate well and are a nice addition to the soup.
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)?
Diana C.:  I would add more vegetables to it, such as mushrooms and bokchoy. I may also serve with a wedge of lime and shrimp.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Diana C.:  I like the flavor the most; the flavor palate in the shin cup is much more diverse than other ramen that I have tried.
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.
Diana C.:  I prepared the shin cup using the microwave method. The microwave method was easy to follow and practical for on the go or at lunch during work.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Diana C.:  The level of spiciness is somewhat intense. Do not try if you are sensitive to heat and spiciness. Go ahead and enjoy if you enjoy intense heat in salsas and sauces.
