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 Ralph S. 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.
Ralph S.:  Salt, cayenne, and beef flavor. The noodles are thin and light much like ramen. The broth itself is tasty and full of flavor.
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)?
Ralph S.:  I would add some cooked ground beef meatballs to it to increase the protein in the meal.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Ralph S.:  The dehydrated vegetables helped set it apart from traditional ramen noodle soups, as well as the more convenient bowl instead of styrofoam cup.
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.
Ralph S.:  I used bottle water and heated the bowl as instructed in the microwave. The water line is physically indicated in the bowl so preparing the soup was simple.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Ralph S.:  I would describe the heat as a 6 out of ten. It is not overpowering and you can still taste the beef base of the broth.
