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 Dan G 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.
Dan G:  The spicy zip in the broth has a hot but flavorful taste to it. The other flavors on the broth give it a beefy robust taste to complement the tender but firm 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)?
Dan G:  Adding the Shin Cup soup to stir fry vegetables would give the vegetables a spicy flavor and add noodles to the vegetable side dish.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Dan G:  I thoroughly enjoyed the big chunky vegetables in the soup. The noodles had a much different texture than most Ramen noodle brands offer.

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.
Dan G:  I do not own a microwave so I did not use the microwave instructions. I heated up some water, got it to a boil, and then poured it in the cup. Then, I let it sit for a few minutes before eating it.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Dan G:  There is quite a bit of heat to this soup. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would say this is a six or a seven.
