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 M 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.
Michael M:  With the Shin noodle cup you can taste oriental flavors gushing forth at your taste buds like an army in the sengoku period rushing forth the enemy forces. The noodles elasticity is as strong and versatile as the samurai trusty katana blade firm in texture but easy to slice. The overall taste can only be described as riding into the final battle with Nobunaga himself, knowing full well you will return victorious and will get you to feel as mighty as the emperor when you finish the last drop of the sweet nectar that is the broth.
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 M:  I personally love adding fresh vegetables such as green onions or mushrooms and add a few cubes of tofu,
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Michael M:  I love the flavors you get with the shin cup it's rich in flavor. The overall quality is better and leaves you feeling fuller than any other ramen cup you can buy.
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 M:  Preparation is as easy as can be open the lid add the flavor packet and fill with water to the line and let it boil. While it is cooking, I slice green onion and mushroom and start cubing some tofu as a forms of protein.

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Michael M:  If you take a regular cup of ramen, you will usually need hot sauce to achieve around 10 percent of flavor and heat compared to the shin cup.
