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 Alison M. from NY 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.
Alison M.:  The broth is very spicy with chicken overtones. Noodler texture is just right, not mushy or overly hard. They taste good.
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)?
Alison M.:  I would add some fresh vegetables to the broth and pour it into a real bowl. It would pair nicely with a prepared chicken cutlet.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Alison M.:  I liked the noodles the best. They were the perfect texture. I like the broth but it is so spicy, so I really took my time eating the dish.
“I liked the noodles the best.”

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.
Alison M.:  I boiled water in an electric kettle. It was very easy to make and the ability to make it in a microwave would be very convenient at work or when traveling.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Alison M.:  Have a glass of water nearby because this is not for wimps! I'd rate it a three-pepper level spicy.

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