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 Arthur K 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.
Arthur K: The broth is full of spicy flavor that doesn't linger after you swallow. The noodles are soft with a natural bounce.
“ The noodles are the perfect texture and flavor.”
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)?
Arthur K: Definitely would add two slices of American cheese. When cheese melts and mixes in with the soup, the taste is amazing. I learned that trick in Korea.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Arthur K: It's bigger in size and it also includes large pieces of vegetable. Also, the noodles are the perfect texture and flavor.
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.
Arthur K: I added room temperature water up to the line and microwaved it for 3 minutes. When I opened the microwave, there was a big mess under the cup. I realized what I did wrong. The 3 minute time is for 1,000 watt microwave, I have a 1,200 watt microwave. 2 minutes would have worked just fine.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Arthur K: The soup is fairly spice but quickly desipitates after the bite is gone.
