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 Daclaud L 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.
Daclaud L:  The broth tastes spicy with some kimchi type of flavor. Not a lot of salt. It can be really spicy if you drink the broth directly. The noodles are a perfect texture, because I did not cook them that long.
“I would personally add egg to the ramen to enhance it!”

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)?
Daclaud L:  Ramen noodles are great for a quick meal. As long as there is hot water or a microwave, then you have a filling meal. I would personally add egg to the ramen to enhance it! Vegetables such as scallion and onion are also good to include if I have them. Otherwise it's fine on it's own.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Daclaud L:  The taste is obviously higher quality than the .25 cent ramen. The spiciness also makes it different and it tastes less artificial than the cheaper ramen. The cup is also convenient because you can add hot water or put it in a microwave!
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.
Daclaud L:  I just added boiling water to the cup. I poured the water over the noodles and the broth and mixed it with a spoon.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Daclaud L:  It is really spicy. I would only use half of the seasoning package.
