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 Robert P. from CO 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.
Robert P.: "Just the right amount of spice, and soft noodles, delicious!! I've lived in Japan before and this reminded me of going to the beef bowls at 2 or 4 in the morning and having a nice piping hot bowl or after skiing and having the same type of noodles and if I remember correctly the sumo wrestlers ate it also... same kind of spice and I really really want that spice back. I used to have a little spice jar that had it, So this noodle in a cup brought back a lot of fun memories!! Thank you."
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)?
Robert P.: My recipe for this is that would take the noodles out of the cup put them in a larger bowl with the seasoning then I add the water appropriate amount of water. and then I like to add vegetables some broccoli Spears on the top and to give it that little bit extra that I will stick to your ribs I'll put tuna fish in it. the don't judge I've had people give me that face but then when they try it they don't believe me. I used to eat this when I was at whitewater kayaking and camping all the time so it's great on a budget or when you don't want to weigh down your pack.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Robert P.: What I like most about this cup of noodles is that it had way more flavor than any ordinary Ramen that you buy off the shelf. Also it had plenty of freeze dried vegetables and mushrooms in it which made it more authentic.
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.
Robert P.: So since I was in a hurry today I just ripped off the top and poured it in the water, stuck in the microwave for 3 minutes, and it came out piping hot noodles, soft like they were more fresh noodles. You don't get that with other Ramen cups. I have tried.... and the seasoning, Oishi... domo arigato gozaimasu!!
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Robert P.: I would say if you like spiciness you'll love this. It's not that fake spicy, it's the real deal Japanese spicy.
