Gourmet Ramen, Anytime x Anywhere

“It was super easy to prepare.”
— Eric L.,  TX

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 Eric L. from TX 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.
A:
The broth definitely had a kick to it. There was definitely a good amount of chili powder in the broth, which I enjoyed because I like spicy foods. The noodles had the right amount of chewiness to them but I wish they absorbed the flavor of the broth a little better. The flakes of mushroom and peppers were a good touch, especially the mushrooms. I actually added some tofu in there that I had at my house and the tofu tasted awesome with 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)?
A:
I added tofu to my cup. The broth was strong enough to provide great flavor to the tofu chunks that I added. I like having a protein when I have noodles to add extra texture, so even if some small tofu chunks were incorporated with the noodles I think it would definitely be good!
Q:
What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
A:
I liked the sturdiness of the container itself. It wasn't flimsy like other ramen cups. I really liked the spiciness of the broth. It was strong, but not overpowering.
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.
A:
I heated up the water in an electric tea kettle. I let the water cool off for a minute after it reaches boiling and then I poured the water in the Shin cup up to the line. After 5 minutes I tried the shin cup and really liked the broth so I added some tofu pieces to it and waited a few more minutes and then finished eating it. It was super easy to prepare.
Q:
If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
A:
I would say it is a tolerabley spicy. Meaning that it is not so spicy that you feel hot or that your mouth is on fire, but that it's a pleasant extra kick to the flavoring.

Thanks for your feedback, Eric L., glad you liked it.
