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 Abdelmalek S from MI 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.
Abdelmalek S:  As I heated the cup in the microwave I noticed a pleasant smell of noodles and a spicy smell in the air. The noodles were filling and appetizing. I heated the cup at 3 minutes and 45 seconds and let it cool. Overall, the cup was filling and appetizing.
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)?
Abdelmalek S:  I would recommend placing freshly cooked chicken and rice into the cup. It enhances the flavor and gives an extra taste to the already delicious cup of noodles.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Abdelmalek S:  The thing I liked most about the cup was the level of spiciness. You really can't get taste like that with other brands of ramen.
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.
Abdelmalek S:  First, I poured the chilled water into the cup after removing the package cover. As labeled, I microwaved the cup for 3:45 until it was hot. After that it was ready to eat.
“The noodles were filling and appetizing.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Abdelmalek S:  It begins very spicy so I would not recommend it to beginners. However, it cools down and becomes more bearable as time goes on.
