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 D. from OH 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 D.:  This is a very spicy meal! I definitely get a strong taste of sodium too. The flavor overall has a beefy, hot, tomato flavor with a good wheat noodle base. The texture of the noodles is slippery.
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 D.:  I could enhance the Shin Cup by adding a meat to it. I think I'd probably add a beef or pork meatball. This would give it flavor elevation.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Joe D.:  I like the spicy flavors of Shin Cup best. I don't often eat ramen, but this spiciness is a definitely thing that sets Shin Cup apart from what I've had before.
“The process was easy and very fast.”

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 D.:  I prepared Shin Cup in the microwave. I followed the directions on the container, which was very convenient. The process was easy and very fast.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Joe D.:  If recommending Shin Cup to someone I'd explain that the heat level and spiciness starts off at about a 7/10. It is almost surprising at first, but is a key component to the flavor of the meal.
