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 Marcus M. from MN 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.
Marcus M.: The flavor of the green onions really sticks out in the broth and it doesn't take long for the garlic to step up and take its place. The texture of the noodles was firm and a little like dumplings. The flavor of the noodles was subdued and took on the flavor of the onions and garlic.
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)?
Marcus M.: I would add whole shrimp to the cup and allow the shrimp to steep with the soup for an additional 10 minutes so the flavors can blend. For a recipe, I'd cook the noodles until done, throw in the refrigerator, and once it's set, slice it up and eat it like dumplings, with lots of soy sauce.
“These are truly flavorful, spicy noodles.”
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Marcus M.: My favorite thing about Shin is the salt and the mushrooms. The Shin soup doesn't rely upon plain white mushrooms, but rather shittake mushrooms.
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.
Marcus M.: Preparation was simple. Just peel the lid back a tiny bit, pour boiling water til the noodles are covered, wait 8 to 10 minutes, and they're ready. This was a fool proof meal prep. I could easily make this before work, run out the door, and eat breakfast on the way to work.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Marcus M.: The first thing I would do before recommending this to a friend is warn them. These are truly flavorful, spicy noodles. This isn't salt soup. If someone hasn't had this before, they should make sure there's a glass of water near by, just in case.
