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 Ian A. from IA 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.
Ian A.:  The Nongshim shin noodle soup calls out "spicy" on the packaging, and the end product surely lives up to that name. You can smell the spices in the broth and it leaves a nice burn after each bite. It is a thicker broth, coupled with the added mushrooms and other vegetables. The noodles are soft, but still remain firm for consistent taste and texture.
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)?
Ian A.:  To offset the very spicy nature of the product, I would potentially add some chicken or a little extra liquid to even out the spices. You could very easily add in some extra vegetables like peas as well.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Ian A.:  The Shin Cup is convenient and the simple directions make it easy to use. It's a great option for someone on the go. This was spicier than other ramen I've tried and for someone who likes spicy, it provides and good alternative.
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.
Ian A.:  I prepared the Shin Cup in the microwave. The simple directions of adding then spices first, then the water and ultimately placing in the microwave was quick and easy. The added guide of the water line was helpful as well.

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Ian A.:  The Shin Cup surprised me with how spicy the product actually was. I enjoy spicy foods, but this was much spicier than any other ramen I have tried.
