Gourmet Ramen, Anytime x Anywhere

“Spicy up front and a lasting kick on the back end.”
— Matt B,  MI

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 Matt B from MI 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:
Honestly, I was pretty impressed with the Gourmet Spicy Shin Noodles. The noodles were a little more than al dente and head up well when I ate them. The broth though is the star. Definitely spicy up front and a lasting kick on the back end. Notes of Thai chili, carrots, and onion. However, these are very, very spicy.
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:
Maybe something to tone down the bite of the spice a bit. Next time I'll toss in a hard boiled egg to help cut the spice a bit.
Q:
What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
A:
Definite spice flavor! And at $0.88 it's a great price.
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 followed the microwave directions: I removed the top, dumped in spice packet, filled with water to the line, and microwaved for three minutes.
Q:
If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
A:
It's very spicy - almost hard to eat.

Thanks for your feedback, Matt B, glad you liked it.
