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 Cristian A from NC 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.
Cristian A:  Similar texture to the more noticeable brand Maruchan. The heat is quite good and may be considered too spicy for some. Didn't feel too watery and had the right viscosity to it.
“The heat is quite good. ”
— Cristian A,  NC
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)?
Cristian A:  I would definitely add some sort of meat to the soup. That in combination with some siracha sauce.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Cristian A:  The spiciness of the soup is what has me hooked. Compared to Maruchan‚ this one is thicker when tasting the broth. Also, the noodles themselves are not as hard to chew as compared to other brands.
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.
Cristian A:  Literally open the prepared cup up. Add boiling water to the mix and let it sit for a few minutes. Then I microwave for 20 seconds.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Cristian A:  On a scale of 1-10, I would give it a 7. The overall greatness of the product receives a 8.
