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 Michael D. from SD 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.
Michael D.:  The essential smell of the dish has a spicy, but earthy well-rounded aroma. The broth has very forward beef flavor with a spice that lingers on the tongue. The texture of the noodles has a firm consistency that pairs well with abundance of green onion and mushroom.
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)?
Michael D.:  I believe the Shin Cup would make an excellent meal with the addition of shrimp meat and cilantro. I think by adding these two ingredients, the Shin Cup would be more filling and I wouldn't feel hungry after eating.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Michael D.:  I was really surprised by the spiciness, as I really love spicy foods. I was also abundantly surprised by the amount of vegetables and mushrooms as compared to other brands of the same nature.
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.
Michael D.:  I boiled water on my stovetop and poured it into the cup. I waited approximately 3 minutes before consuming. I found the preparation very easy and convenient.

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Michael D.:  I would definitely recommend this product to others - especially for those who enjoy spicy foods. This product would be great for people that only have 30 minutes for their lunch break.
