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 Chris L. from NM 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.
Chris L.:  A deliciously spicy cup of noodles with overtones of garlic, cayenne and scallions. The blend of spices dances excitedly upon my tongue. I am longing for another taste!
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)?
Chris L.:  I think I would add some grilled beef and maybe a boiled egg to spruce it up and make it a complete meal. An eggroll on the side would also compliment these noodles nicely.
“I like the variety of vegetables in it - I believe I see some mushrooms and green onions!”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Chris L.:  I like the variety of vegetables in it - I believe I see some mushrooms and green onions! Other ramen usually just have noodles and broth.
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.
Chris L.:  I microwaved water in the microwave then added it to noodles and soup base. I covered for three minutes. Once ready it is convenient to eat anywhere.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Chris L.:  They are fairly spicy but not too spicy, at least for me. The other spices and vegetables round it out nicely.
