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 Adam G. from TX 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.
Adam G.:  The texture of the noodles are soft and have a smooth feel. The broth has a hint of onion powder taste, along with peppers. The red peppers is a good addition to the noodles. The soup broth itself tastes good, and I do not need to add anything to it as I would on other noodle soups. I love the complements that the mushrooms add to 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)?
Adam G.:  I would like to try to add bits of tiny diced chicken to the broth. I think peas would be a great accent to the flavor blend also. Along with chicken, I think I would like to add a hint of sriracha sauce. Or as a substitution of chicken, shrimp would be a good idea to add to the soup.
“This cup is perfectly seasoned and hot enough as it is.”

Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Adam G.:  I like how it's about the same preparation time as others. It's also convenient as it is in a cup and fast to make. Other brands claim to have hot sauce or peppers, but I always have to add my own hot sauce to spice it up. This cup is perfectly seasoned and hot enough as it is. No need to make changes or additions on my end, and I just eat it.
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.
Adam G.:  I read the instructions to find the steps for my cooking method. It was super convenient as I only had to pour the soup base in the cup and fill to the water line. After that you place it in the microwave for 3 minutes and you are free to eat.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Adam G.:  I would say it is definitely spicer than other name brand noodles. If you like your noodles to be spicy, these would be a good option. The spiciness is not overwhelming and has an overall good broth taste.
