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 Mark M. from OH 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.
Mark M.:  Definitely tastes spicy, with some hits of pepper. A hint of garlic is noticeable as an aftertaste. Tender noodles. Overall pretty good.
“I would say that if you enjoy spicy instant ramen, pick this up!”

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)?
Mark M.:  Chicken seems like it would go great with this soup. It can help cut down on the amount of broth in the cup, making the dish more enjoyable!
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Mark M.:  This ramen seems like there is more flavor than other ramen. I have tried other spicy ramen bowls, and they seem like they are just spicy, and nothing else. For a cheap bowl of instant ramen, this is pretty good.
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.
Mark M.:  I prepared this bowl in the microwave. I poured the powder soup base in, added water, then microwaved it for 3 minutes. It was fast and easy to prepare, but it may not be the easiest on the go meal as you need a fork to enjoy it, and there is a lot of broth.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Mark M.:  I would describe the heat as a 7 out of 10 scale. I generally enjoy spicy things, so I would say that if you enjoy spicy instant ramen, pick this up!
