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 Matt SN from CA 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.
Matt SN:  The broth is quite spicy and salty, but not unbearable. I really like the amount of spice in the dish. I like the texture of the noodles as they are soft and tasty. The mushroom and beef flavor compliment the noodles well.
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)?
Matt SN:  I would add eggs or cheese to cut the spice down a little. I would also add soy sauce or furikake seasoning.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Matt SN:  I like that the Nong shim noodles are tender. I also like that the broth was spicy with an umami flavor. It is above average when compared to other brands, in my opinion.
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.
Matt SN:  I heated up water and added it to the cup. I sealed and let it sit for 5-6 minutes.
“It is above average when compared to other brands, in my opinion.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Matt SN:  It is very spicy and so I suggest trying half of the soup base first. It is a 7 out of 10 as far as spice as goes.
