Gourmet Ramen, Anytime x Anywhere

“I'm impressed by the amount of flavors this bowl contained.”
— Max D.,  CA

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 Max D. from CA 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.
A:
I'm at a loss for words ... no wait that's just the spicy kick! Wow that broth really packs a punch! It doesn't creep up at all, it's in your face right from the beginning. I used parmesan cheese packets to take the edge off and it's really good. I thought it was too much at first but it's addicting so I found a way to mellow the spice levels. Just like cream cheese in a jalapeno popper; a seemingly odd pairing ends up a winner in my book.
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)?
A:
I think I will have to go back and try other cheese and dairy combinations. Western influence on an Eastern staple.
Q:
What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
A:
I'm impressed by the amount of flavors this bowl contained. The best flavor is definitely the shitake 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.
A:
I poured boiling water in the bowl and after the initial taste I added 2 packets of grated parmesan cheese. I have found that if you add parmesan too early it will clump together and stick to the fork.
Q:
If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
A:
If you can handle spicy food, then I will recommend this as is. However, if you are a bit more on the tame side, I suggest cheese or heavy cream.

Thanks for your feedback, Max D., glad you liked it.
