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 John Y. from CO 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.
John Y.:  The Shin noodle soup provided a strong pungent smell, to which it was going to mentally prepare me for the flavored spices in this noodle soup. The flavors were very sharp and had a refreshing kick to where it provided a sinus cleansing affect. With the right amount of water, the noodles had the perfect soft and chewy restaurant texture. The overall taste of the noodle soup was very enjoyable for the value and filling sensation after you eat the complete bowl.
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)?
John Y.:  To enhance the meal, I would add a side dish that you would tend to receive at Asian restaurants. Normally I would add rice to the remaining broth, which could be an additional item that could come with the bowl.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
John Y.:  I prefer the Shin ramen noodles, because the taste is more pungent and is not bland compared to the other ramen brands. The Shin ramen noodles has more of the restaurant type of taste compared to the competitors.
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.
John Y.:  The convenience of preparing the noodles was one of the most simplest processes. The only thing you need is hot water which can be found at most gas stations and it only took a few minutes to prepare.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
John Y.:  When recommending this product I would let people know that it is mild with a spicy kick at the end of each bite or sip of the broth.
“Very enjoyable.”
