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 Ryan M from LA 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.
Ryan M:  The first thing I thought was how spicy it was. I have to take breaks in between every couple of bites. The noodles seem chewy but not mushy. They just remind me of the old school Top Ramen noodles. I'm not sure what the ingredients could be. It tastes more like vegetables than meat. I don't think this is chicken. I really do like it. I just I wish it wasn't so 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)?
Ryan M:  I can see me putting a scrambled egg in this. That would be tasty. Maybe a chicken bullion cube if I wanted to get a little bit more chicken flavor. Also, putting a scrambled egg in it. I can't think of any specific recipes I would make with it. Maybe add more tomato to it and make a Mexican casserole of some kind.
“Very easy.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Ryan M:  I like the price. It really doesn't taste any different than any other ramen noodles I have other than it being spicy, not including the meat ones.
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.
Ryan M:  I poured water in it and put it in the microwave for 3 minutes. It was as simple as that. Very easy.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Ryan M:  I would definitely tell somebody not to eat it if they do not like spicy things. If they do, they would like this.
