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 Dan L from ME about Nongshim and here's what he 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.
Dan L: Firstly I'll address the spice level: I'd put it around a medium salsa. It is just enough kick to slightly activate my sweat glands, while not overpowering the rest of the flavor at all. The noodles are slightly softer than most cup noodles. They hold the broth's flavor well. The flavor of the broth is a nice blend of spice, fish sauce and beefy umami.
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)?
Dan L: I would use slightly less water and add some egg and chunky peanut butter.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Dan L: It has a more natural broth flavor - most noodle cups taste like cheap bullion.
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.
Dan L: I boiled water on the stove, then peeled the top halfway back, added the flavor pack, added the recommended level of water, and used my fork to hold the lid closed for a couple of minutes. It doesn't get much easier.
“It doesn't get much easier.”
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Dan L: If you enjoy spicey food, this will be mild to medium for you. If you find mayonnaise spicey, stay away.
