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 Eric N. from IL 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.
Eric N.:  Mostly, I taste spiciness and heat. I'm also getting pepper, garlic and some hint of meat. The noodles are soft, but not too limp, certainly not stiff or hard. Overall, I like the taste of the noodles and the spiciness. I'm enjoying the flavor of this bowl more than I thought I would.
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)?
Eric N.:  I might give it a bit more of a meat flavor. Perhaps chicken, pork or fish would go well with the spiciness. Otherwise the cup was pretty good as is.
“Despite the heat, you can still pick up other flavors in it!”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Eric N.:  I like the price most of all. It seems like you get a decent amount of food for under a dollar which is great. I would say it's more flavorful than the other ones that I've tried.
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.
Eric N.:  I prepared it in the microwave. I feel like as long as you have a microwave handy, or a way to heat water on a stove then it's very easy to prepare.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Eric N.:  I would describe it as being fairly spicy, but not the hottest thing in the world. I would tell them that despite the heat, you can still pick up other flavors in it!
