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 Armando R. from CA 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.
Armando R.:  The heat of the flavor was well balanced. The mushroom and onion pieces were bigger than expected. The noodles were not soggy and were well formed after steeping in the cup. Together with the broth and noodles, the beef flavor came through exceptionally well.
“The variety and abundance of vegetables was much better than other brands I have tried.”
— Armando R.,  CA
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)?
Armando R.:  I would use it for Yakisoba and add fresh vegetables. The flavor would lend itself for that dish. We will try it the next time we prepare that meal at home.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Armando R.:  The variety and abundance of vegetables was much better than other brands I have tried. The flavor was more robust and not overtaken by the spices. The cup size was good and hearty, compared to similar types of other ramen cups.
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.
Armando R.:  I preheated water in the microwave and poured it into the cup. This way I was better able to regulate the desired temperature of the soup. I enjoyed my hot cup of ramen noodle soup.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Armando R.:  I would mention the heat of the spice would be about a medium, and that they should not over heat the water. That the robust flavors would would not overpower the spiciness of the broth.
