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 Jason B. from AR 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.
Jason B.: The soup as whole is more substantial than other brands. The noodles are more firm and perhaps thinker. The broth is quite spicy with an immediate taste of chili pepper and a subtle, but savory onion flavor. The mushrooms, carrots and onion pieces add a pleasant texture. I enjoyed the level of spice; it was quite spicy, but not too overwhelming.
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)?
Jason B.: The Shin Cup would be excellent served with pork or chicken. The soup alone is excellent, but I would add more mushrooms when serving it as part of a meal.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Jason B.: I enjoyed the spiciness and level of flavor. Other brands have less seasoning. The noodles and extras (mushrooms, carrots, etc.) are also more substantial. Noodles are firmer and thicker. The extras are larger.
“Spicy, but a perfect level for those who enjoy spicy food.”
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.
Jason B.: The soup is very easy to prepare. I microwaved a few cups of water, added the packet to the noodles, and poured the water into the cup. It's very convenient with very little other materials needed.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Jason B.: This soup is the spiciest I've ever had in this type of soup. It had to be eaten slowly and it left my lips burning slightly. Spicy, but a perfect level for those who enjoy spicy food.
