Last night I was jonesing for some soup and out of my old standby, Top Ramen, so I ventured out in search of surrogates. At the outrageously overpriced deli at Hudson and W. 11th (Abingdon Sq Market), I browsed the imported Korean ramen section. A nice Asian girl warned me away from the one with kim chee in it and recommended the Shin Cup. I got it. It’s delicious. It’s head and shoulders above Top Ramen and torso and head above the vile Cup o’ Soup.

Today I went to Sunrise Mart on Broome and picked up a BIG Shin Cup for $1.09 — $0.41 less than Abingdon charged for the small cup. Down with Abindgon (prices)! Up with heart disease. It’s incredible how much salt and fat they manage to pack into these seemingly innocuous noodles. I didn’t use the whole seasoning packet and it was still super spicy/briny. Ah well. Unless you cook for yourself, the cheaper you eat, the more you die. ;)

    The Shin Cup’s have amazing taste… but look out for the MSG. Too much has pretty bad side effects. (But then too much of anything is “bad”). Enjoy!!
