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 Alan H. from NM 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.
Alan H.:  "The noodles were soft, but not too soft that they would fall off the fork. The broth was definitely spicey, but very flavorful. After my first bite I couldn't wait to take a second bite. On the spectrum of Mild, Medium, Hot, and Very hot I would place it on Hot."
“It's a very flavorful product at a reasonable price, and it filled me up.”

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)?
Alan H.:  I would add lemon or lime flavors. I would also like to eat it with shrimp.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Alan H.:  It's a very flavorful product at a reasonable price, and it filled me up. It seemed it had a lot more noodles compared to others.
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.
Alan H.:  I was originally going to use hot water but my water cooler didn't have the water heater turned on. So I poured room temperature water and microwaved it for the suggested 3 minutes. I did have to wait for it to cook down. Overall still a quick and easy meal.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Alan H.:  I would say on a scale of 1-10 I would place it at a solid 7. It's not a heat that turns you away it's a heat you want to continue to enjoy.
