Gourmet Ramen, Anytime x Anywhere
“This would make a good alternative version of Hispanic menudo.”
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 David E. from AZ about Nongshim and here's what he had to say:
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.
The broth is spicy with a hint of shrimp flavor and deeply colored. The noodles are soft, but not soggy and still have a little bite to them. The noodles and broth together are spicy, but not overly so, and you can still make out the salty and onion notes as well!
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)?
I would add more vegetables and perhaps adjust the spice level down a little bit. This would make a good alternative version of Hispanic menudo and tastes very similar already.
What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
The noodles of this ramen are very good and perfectly done. The broth of the Shin Cup is also more richly flavored than others I've tried!
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.
I removed the top and added the flavor packet and water to the line indicated. I set it in the microwave and microwaved it for 3 minutes before removing and stiring it.
If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
It is spicy, but not so intense to be not edible. I would say that if a person generally likes spicy foods then they would love this product.
Thanks for your feedback, David E., glad you liked it.
