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 Joshua K from PA 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.
Joshua K:  The first thing that stands out is the spice. A mixture of garlic rounds out the red chilli flakes. The green onion provides a nice variation from the broth and the mushroom sits just right. The noodle itself is firm but chewable. It's not falling apart but it's just palatable to sit in the broth while you make your way through with a spoon.
“Perfect heat.”
— Joshua K,  PA
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)?
Joshua K:  I took a few sips and without provocation added grilled chicken and steamed broccoli. It turned into a little stir-fry that I absolutely love right now.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Joshua K:  Most ramen is boring and they are trying to incorporate freeze dried proteins (mini shrimp dried are visually disgusting) and this doesn't do that. The spice allows you to make your additions with possible coconut milk to turn towards Thai or just a protein and veg to incorporate an American consideration.
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.
Joshua K:  Boiled water (I'm at home) and mixed in the packet. I waited about 30 seconds and began to submerge the noodles until all were covered. I sipped the broth then made my additions
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Joshua K:  Perfect heat. Not overwhelming but certainly not mild enough to be annoyed because you were expecting heat. Out of 10, I'd give it an 8.
