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 Don H from NV 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.
Don H:  I really do not care for oriental noodles, however my wife is Filipino so I cooked it for her I had a little taste of it. It's a little bit spicy for me, buts he absolutely enjoyed the heat and the spiciness. She said it had very good flavor and says we're going to buy a few more!
“It's not like regular Ramen noodles.”

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)?
Don H:  Well the only thing I could probably think of doing would be to add it to some fresh vegetables and a little meat like broccoli and pork or beef. It obviously needs two or 3 cups at least to get the proper flavor enhanced for the vegetables and meat.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Don H:  I only tasted it my wife ate it, and she really loves the flavor in the heat. It's got the proper amount of spiciness for her - it's not like regular Ramen noodles. I believe the noodles are a little bit thicker and Ramen doesn't have anything spicy like that. Very good product according to my wife.
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.
Don H:  Well you really can't get much easier than that, you can stick in the microwave for a few minutes or boil a little water and you got yourself a nice hot little meal. I mean, add water and stick in the microwave. Can't get any simpler.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Don H:  I would simply tell them if they like spicy food, but like a quick appetizer before a real meal this would be a very good product. I don't like spicy food, so would not be for me, but I know a lot of people that love that spicy stuff!
