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 Thomas V. 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.
Thomas V.:  The noodles have the same texture as other similar products, a soft textured noodle. The color from the spices leave the broth a red color. The initial taste gives you hints of different peppers and gives you a nice warm burning sensation on your tongue.
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)?
Thomas V.:  I would use it as a base for cooking a Asian inspired dish. Throw the Shin Cup in a wak along with more chicken and some vegetables. The Shin Cup would be the only spices needed.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Thomas V.:  Most other ramen are often bland and boring, not this one. The Shin cup is spicy but not burn your face off hot. It has enough kick to make it a good base for an Asian inspired meal.

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.
Thomas V.:  All it took to cook it was some water and a microwave, and who doesnt have access to a microwave somewhere. All it took was a quick 3 minutes and it was ready.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Thomas V.:  The cup has enough kick to get your lips tingling but not enough to make you cry. As someone who usually can't handle spicy foods, this one had just the right amount of heat.
