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 Jonathan F. from CA 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.
Jonathan F.: These noodles were spicy, but it was a very good spicy. Not too spicy, just the right amount of heat that you can continue to enjoy the rest of the noodles. The broth was very flavorful with a slight seafood taste? The little mushrooms were a nice touch and helped to break up just eating noodles. The noodles still had a nice bite and bounce when cooked with the directions of 3 mins. They weren't soggy, and didn't absorb too much of 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)?
Jonathan F.: I would enhance this Shin Cup with a protein. A hard boiled egg or some sort of meat product. More mushrooms would be great too but not too much that it absorbs a majority of the broth. As far as recipes I would make with it, I think it is best as a soup. Just add a protein to make it your own and it's perfect.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Jonathan F.: I love that it has a spicy kick that makes you want to eat more and more. I found myself at the bottom of the cup in no time. It wasn't too spicy, just the right amount of kick. The noodles also were a bit more thick than other ramen in cups so it wasn't as soggy as others.
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.
Jonathan F.: It was very easy to prepare. Just heat up water, open the cup, pour in the packet, fill the water until the line and wait for 3 mins. It is very easy to prepare for on the go as long as you have access to hot water.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Jonathan F.: If you can't take any spiciness then I don't think these noodles would be right for you. If you like spicy food then this would be perfect, as it keeps you wanting to eat more. It's not excessively spicy and it did have me sweat a bit.
“It keeps you wanting to eat more.”
