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 Nick S. from FL 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.
Nick S.: The broth was spicy, but not so much so that it was unbearable. Liking spicy foods, it was actually quite enjoyable. The spices packed just enough punch to make it great. The texture of the noodles were about the same as you would expect from microwave noodles, but I've always loved the taste of them and their texture didn't feel cheap at all. Together, both the broth and noodles provided a spicy, tasty noodle soup that I would buy again.
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)?
Nick S.: Personally, I would pour the soup into a regular bowl and then mix up some fresh veggies like diced carrots and onions in a pan and sautee them, then pour them in the bowl of soup to freshen up the taste.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Nick S.: I loved how spicy it was, and that was definitely one of the things that differed from other ramen I have tried. I've never purchased spicy ramen, and I absolutely loved the taste and will definitely buy more of it now.
“I absolutely loved the taste and will definitely buy more of it now.”
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.
Nick S.: The preparation of the Shin Cup was super simple! All I had to do was pull of the lid, fill up room-temperature water to the line, and heat it up for 3 minutes. Then, I just stirred and it was ready! It's a simple and tasty meal that requires little to no work to make.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Nick S.: The level of heat would probably be a 4 to a 5 if you were using a 1-10 scale. Loving spicy food, it wasn't too spicy, but still tasted delicious.
