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 Joe L. from MA 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.
Joe L.:  The gourmet spicy noodles taste great and make an excellent quick meal. I usually pour boiling water over them and let them sit for a few minutes. Then the noodles get nice and soft.
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)?
Joe L.:  I like to add a dash of toasted sesame oil. It is also a good idea to add some green onions, cilantro, and a soft boiled egg.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Joe L.:  The soup has a very nice spicy taste without being overly hot. I also like the texture of the noodles. They are chewy.

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.
Joe L.:  I poured boiling water to the noodles and let them sit for about five minutes. Then I added cilantro and sesame oil. It is extremely easy to prepare.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Joe L.:  The product has a spicy taste, but is not overly hot.
