    Default Shin Cup

    My Korean friend gave me a case of Shin Cups a while back. I am now addicted to these Korean noodles. It's basically like "Cup-O-Noodles", but it comes spicy. I usually add Red Rooster Sauce (Sriracha) and a little soy sauce.... But with Shin Cup, you don't need to add anything.

    It comes with a little packet inside that has the secret ingredients to spice up your life.

    I fell in love the first time I ate a Shin Cup, and upon investigating, I found that Shin Cup has quite the cult following.

    I recommend trying a Shin Cup today, they are fantastic, (as far as instant noodle cups go).

    I always liked Cup-O-Noodles and Maruchan (I call it Muchen), but Shin Cup blows um' away!

    Here's a tip: Don't buy the Shin "Bowl", it doesn't have the same ingredient ratio, so it is not as spicy, or as tasty. It also is made of a plastic bowl, so when you add the hot water, you get a little plasticky taste with it. The Shin "Cup" is made of thick paper, and does not affect the taste.

    My Shin Cup is done cooking........ Gotta run!!!


    EAT SHIN!!!!!!






    This is a pic of the contents, minus the secret ingredient package!

    I bought some noodles at a store in Waegwan back in the mid 90's. I wish I could remember what they were called because they were the best noodles I have ever eaten. (and those melon juice bar things)

    I usually try a couple of different brands each time I hit the Marukai or Mitsuwa markets here in San Diego, can't recall the brands though. I really like the Singapore style noodles though so give them a try.

    When I lived near Little Tokyo I used to go to Yaohan Plaza for the grocery store, bakeries and the restaurants. Haven't been there in years so I don't know how that mall is holding up.

    I bought a couple of the large hot & spicy Shin Cups, the broth is good but I don't like the noodles as they seem kind of rubbery even when not left to sit the full 4 min.

    As much as I like korean ramen, it has 1870mg sodium. Too much for me.
