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 Michael H. from WI 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.
Michael H.:  Very complex flavors for an instant soup. Upon taking a spoonful of noodles and broth you taste mild somewhat chewy noodles. As you chew and swallow the noodles the broth leaves a warm and spicy umami taste behind.
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)?
Michael H.:  This soup would work great with cubed and browned beef or chicken added as a protien source with a few fresh or frozen vegetables to make a complete meal.

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Michael H.:  This ramen had a depth of flavor I am not used to when purchasing ramen. The biggest difference is in how the spices meld with the noodles and produce a spicy yet appetizing taste.
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.
Michael H.:  Removed cover, added water and microwaved for 3 minutes. Easy prep that came out right when following the simple instructions provided.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Michael H.:  It is very spicy, yet not overly hot. I would rate it medium-hot.
