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 Steven B. from VA 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.
Steven B.:  The noodles are thick and hardy compared to most noodle cups. The spiciness is not overwhelming with heat, but presents itself with a nice even tingle. The flavor of the green onion and red chili peppers are the main flavors you taste, but they mingle well together.
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)?
Steven B.:  This will be perfect with a side dish of Kimchi! You could add some tomatoes to maybe sweeten it up and a hint of cilantro. You could use it crushed up over a salad instead of croutons.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Steven B.:  I eat ramen at least 2-3 times a week and the quality of the noodles is far superior due to the thickness. It does not have the normal wax texture to the noodles prior to cooking them like some ramen has.
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.
Steven B.:  I chose the microwave method because it seems to get all the noodles versus the hot water method which can sometimes miss a lot of them when being poured through it. I dipped my finger in the soup base pack prior to fixing it to get the level of spicy that it has so that I could adjust the amount if needed.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Steven B.:  The level of heat is well balanced with the bite of the spice. It stays with you and will help warm you up on a cold day.
“This will be perfect with a side dish of Kimchi!”
