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 Christopher P. 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.
Christopher P.:  Nongshim noodles are tasty, but also very spicy. I always have a cup of water handy when eating Korean noodles. The chili pepper flavored seasoning is perfect and the noodles have an excellent texture and taste great. The chopped vegetables really add to the heartiness of the soup.

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)?
Christopher P.:  I think it is a perfect meal on its own, but tossing some diced cubes of grilled chicken or steak would really be outstanding.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Christopher P.:  It's much more flavorful than the usual brands you find in stores, like Nissin. The noodles taste better and the dehydrated vegetables seem to be of higher quality. They are pricier, but very much worth the extra money.
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.
Christopher P.:  I filled the cup to the fill line, then I microwaved the noodles for 3 minutes. This is definitely among the easiest lunches to prepare as it takes very little time or effort.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Christopher P.:  These are definitely more spicy than a lot of people can handle. I would say spicier than fresh jalapeños, but nowhere near habanero level.
