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 Justin L. 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.
Justin L.: The flavor of the noodles were surprisingly complex with a nice spicy heat that didn't drown out the scallion and mushroom. The noodles were perfect - not too hard and not too mushy either. The directions were very easy, and I was impressed with the overall satisfaction that you can get from taking a few minutes to make an inexpensive, yet satisfying lunch.
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)?
Justin L.: I was very pleased with the way it was for a quick, satisfying lunch. However, if I wanted to use the great flavor of the noodles and broth, adding some grilled chicken or shrimp would really enhance the product.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Justin L.: The thing I liked most was the flavor, and you also can't beat the price. The ease of making the noodles was also a plus.
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.
Justin L.: The convenience of preparing the noodles was very easy. I used my kettle that I warm water with to make tea and coffee and poured it right into the cup. Couldn't have been easier.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Justin L.: I would say overall the level of heat was not overbearing. But it did have a nice kick to it. If you're used to eating spicy foods, I don't think you would have any problem with this product. Even if you didn't like spicy foods, I may not recommend it, but I don't think it was overly spicy.
