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 Jonathan M. 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.
Jonathan M.:  The green onion and mushroom flavors come through nicely in the broth, and the red chili provides a strong spiciness. The noodles are firm not soggy, similar to Al Dente pasta. The overall experience is an enjoyable spicy Asian soup.
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)?
Jonathan M.:  I would add something on the side like spring rolls. Another option would be an Asian salad.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Jonathan M.:  I enjoyed the spiciness of the broth and the firmness of the noodles. Other Ramen soups I have tried have not been as flavorful and the noodles have been soggy.
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.
Jonathan M.:  Preparation was super easy. I unpacked and poured in the seasoning. Then I just ran some hot water for my coffee machine.
