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 Joe F from IL 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.
Joe F: I prepared this product using the microwave instructions, with very good results. The noodles were medium firm, about what I expect from ramen noodles. The flavor is quite intense. Right off the bat I detected chili pepper and black pepper as well as some onion in the background. Although not listed, there was also a hint of lemony flavor in there as well. With all the strong spices, I couldn't detect the beef base that was supposed to be there! And the burn definitely lingers on the lips and tongue long after the soup is gone.
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)?
Joe F: I thought the product was quite satisfying as is. If anything, I might be tempted to add some fresh chopped onions to the soup.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Joe F: Most ramen products I've tried were usually fairly bland and needed some help with salt, pepper and perhaps chopped onion. This product stood well on its own.
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.
Joe F: I used the microwave instructions, which were quite simple. I opened the cup, added the soup base and filled with water to the marked line. Three minutes in the microwave and it was ready to eat.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Joe F: Initially hot and peppery, but not overly spicy, with a lingering afterburn.
