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 Preston S. from AR 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.
Preston S.:  In the broth, I taste flavors of beef, garlic and a hint of ginger. There is obviously a distinct spiciness. The noodles have a slight chewiness to them, which is a nice contrast to the usual mush that comes in noodles in a cup. Overall I like it, but there may be a little bit too much salt in my opinion.
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)?
Preston S.:  To make this even better, I would like to add either grilled chicken or shrimp. Adding a little bit of extra protein would make it much more of a meal.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Preston S.:  I like the spicy flavor and the rich broth. Also, noodles had a nice chew to them, compared to the usual mush that most have.
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.
Preston S.:  For this occasion, I boiled water and poured over the top. For more convenience, I would probably use the microwave method in the future.

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Preston S.:  This is spicier than most prepackage noodles. However it wouldn't burn your tongue off :-)
