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 Michael B from MT 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 B:  The original flavor and taste was very powerful, with a great zest. Then the noodles were very silky, they had such a well-balanced texture not found in similar noodles. The aftertaste was warm and delightful, not too spicy.
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 B:  I would definitely add some onion and celery to this, possibly even done boneless skinless chicken pieces. Additionally, I think some carrots and corn would put this over the top.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Michael B:  I loved the flavor and spicyness of the soup, as well as it being well balanced. Additionally, I felt the texture was amazing, the noodles melted in my mouth.
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 B:  I used hot water, added the included packet, then filled it up to the line inside the cup. Afterwards, I let sit for roughly five minutes to fully soak up the flavor.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Michael B:  I would definitely recommend this to someone that likes tolerable spicyness. It was extremely well balanced and filling.
