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 Brandon M. from IN 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.
Brandon M.: The broth contains both a spicy and creamy flavor that compliments the noodles. The broth itself is very unique in that it is both tangy and spicy at the same time. The noodles look like normal noodles you would get in a similar product, but once you eat them they take up the volume of your mouth. They are very satisfying upon tasting them, and are more creamy than you would expect. The noodles give a satisfying, cooler texture when combined with the spicy broth, which gives the combination of a very tasty combo. Together, the spicy and creamy combination give you both the same satisfaction as a sweet and salty snack would.
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)?
Brandon M.: I would consider adding a small amount of cream or milk to help lessen the effect of the spice.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Brandon M.: I liked the spicy and creamy combination the Shin Cup offered. The combined flavor has a step up on single-flavored typical ramen noodle cups.
“I liked the spicy and creamy combination the Shin Cup offered. ”
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.
Brandon M.: I prepared the Shin Cup using a microwave oven, after adding room temperature water as suggested by the instructions. The Shin Cup took minimal effort to prepare. The instructions were very clear. The Shin Cup could be an ideal cup to eat on the go, since it is easy to prepare and takes little-to-no time.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Brandon M.: The level of heat was manageable to my personal liking, but it may be too spicy for someone else's liking. The heat was similar to that of a jalapeño or a banana pepper, in that it was spicy but not too hot.
