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 Clinton H from MO 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.
Clinton H: When taking the first bite you notice the beef and mushrooms right away. Then comes hints of chili pepper, onion and a touch of black pepper. The noodles and soft and delicate, but not mushy. If I had to describe the taste it would have to be a perfect mix of spicy and savory flavors.
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)?
Clinton H: The addition of some grilled shrimp and wasabi would really kick off this dish. I feel this would be a perfect combination of Surf and turf and the extra heat from the wasabi would really add that final touch.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Clinton H: The texture of the noodles were by far the best part of Shin Cup noodles. When it comes to most other brands they tend to fall a little flat when it comes to there noodles. They tend to be overly mushy or crunchy, but these noodles were just right.
“If you can handle jalapenos, you can handle this!”
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.
Clinton H: I followed the microwave instructions on the side of the package. The packaged instructions were really easy to understand and only took a couple minutes to prepare. I feel anyone looking for a quick meal will have no problem making this.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Clinton H: I would describe the heat and spiciness as mild to moderately spicy, but not overwhelming. If you can handle jalapenos, you can handle this!
