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 Tim R. from OH 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.
Tim R.Tim R.:  The chicken broth tastes fresh, not instant. It is just the right amount of sweetness, and has a higher degree of spicy-ness than I was expecting. The noodles have the right amount of "chewiness", and have absorbed some of the spicy oils from the seasoning packet. The texture of the noodle is perfect, and tastes like restaurant noodles. The added vegetables give a nice appearance and taste to the soup as well.
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)?
Tim R.Tim R.:  I would consider adding some cut up cooked chicken, and perhaps a small dash of sesame oil.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Tim R.Tim R.:  The portion size is ideal as a lunchtime meal. The soup tastes so much fresher and better than other instant ramen soups. The packaging and preparation ease make it ideal to prepare at work.
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.
Tim R.Tim R.:  Very easy to prepare. I had microwave nearby but no close by faucet, so I prepared using bottled water. I was concerned the soup would bubble over, but it was fine.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Tim R.Tim R.:  I would not recommend to a family who doesn't like spicy foods. However, some of my siblings like very spicy foods and would enjoy the level of heat this soup provides.
