Shincup, there is no equal...
Unless you are talking about Shin Cup Black.
This. Just eating some now. The garlic, soy sauce and oil sachet is the best bit.
Cheers all, going out to get some shin cup noodles, any flavours to avoid?
There really is only two shincups. The original which is the red one. Then they have their black one, which is a special edition premium one with an extra sachet to add flavour, thicken the soup and give it a more 'premium' taste.
You can get beef and chicken too, they used to do them at my asda, but they dont anymore. They are both decent enough, though the original spicy one is the best for sure.
These are also my favourite but my local Tesco, Sainsbury's and cornershop all stopped selling them around the same time last year so assumed they stopped making them. Will have to order a load online.
Most are pretty tasty, though I agree that you just can't beat a shin cup. Just avoid the Naked Noodle pots like the plague. Absolutely disgusting! The broth thickens up like Bolognaise and the noodles are way too short.
BBQ beef super noodles are the daddy.
Tried the Shin Cup Hot and Spicy noodles recently and they're just like your average asian insta-noodles, nothing special.
Curse you OcUK
A box of these turned up today after I saw this thread...
I bought a box from Asda yesterday after seeing this thread! I love those Shin Cups haha. I want some spicier ones though, any recommendations?
I did the same and bought a Shincup after seeing all the recommendations.... have to say... i really enjoyed it
I DARE you to gargle the broth.
There are a few other Korean ones that are spicier but i just find the taste from Shincup better.
For you Shincup lovers, try one of these bad boys:
The premium 'black' version.
Warning, NEVER smell Shincup before or immediately after adding water. Salt and Chilli are two horrible things to get up your nose.
Warrgh! Use a saucer upside down! Not a fork! Weight that lid down so no lovely steam escapes!
Tried this once. Didn't end well
+1 my favourite shin cup as well! I always mix in a little shredded chicken to add a bit of protein.
There seems to be a lot of knowledge in this thread so maybe you guys can help.
In Aus in 2000 I used to by noodles very like Indo Mike (they may have been for all I know). The had garlic in oil, some soy, a red chilli sauce, a flavour sachet and a small sachet of crispy onions. They were as cheap as the Indo Mie ones linked to.
Any ideas what they might have been?
Are these shin cup death in terms of heat, then? It’s the impression you’re all giving! What are the options for sissy types (me ) who can’t handle a lot of heat?
If you wouldn't have anything spicier than a tika masala from an indian, then it would be too spicy I would say.
The Nong Shin chicken and the beef ones are pretty good. They have oolongmen written on the front. They are harder to get from supermarkets though.
