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 Ativut S. from IN 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.
Ativut S.:  The taste of the broth is not too spicy, but the flavor of dried chilis is distinct. The noodles are quite soft and strong, typical of Korean noodles. The overall taste of the noodles in the broth is still plain and not too spicy or tangy at all.
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)?
Ativut S.:  I would stir fry it with some kind of meat and vegetables, using the Shin spice. The noodles are already ideal for a stir fry. The boiled water would water down the spice significantly.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Ativut S.:  I like its soft and strong noodles and the kimchi flavor. It's different from other brands because it has the kimchi flavor that's unique to Korean ramen.
“It has the kimchi flavor that's unique to Korean ramen.”

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.
Ativut S.:  I microwaved the cup with water for 3 minutes. I think preparing it is very convenient. This is not different from preparing any other noodles.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Ativut S.:  On the scale from 1-10, this is only a 6.
