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 Michael G. from CA 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.
Michael G.:  The flavor of the broth is very familiar to the other instant noodles I've eaten when I put tapatio sauce in it. It has a good spice to it, not to hot, just right. The noodles were not that great, they were very mushy. The noodles combined with the broth was not that great also, it seemed like the flavor really didn't stick to noodles.
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)?
Michael G.:  In order to enhance the flavor, I would add some meats, chicken, bacon, pork, beef, whatever I have extra in my fridge. I would also add some fresh vegetables in there, like mushrooms and carrots.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Michael G.:  I like the broth. It has a good level of spiciness to it. It differs from other ramen because the regular flavor once I have to put my own sauce, and the ones that are spicy are sometimes either too spicy or not spicy at all.
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.
Michael G.:  It was very easy, I poured room temperature water and put it in the microwave for 3 minutes. Just as the direction on the side of the cup say.
“The level of heat and spiciness is just perfect!”
