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 Kristian D. from TX 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.
Kristian D.:  I taste a strong chili pepper, mushrooms, and green onion flavors. The noodles are a soft texture, and the flavor with the broth is spicy, but good.
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)?
Kristian D.:  The would add sautéed broccoli and cabbage to this in the future.
“I like the spice level.”
— Kristian D.,  TX
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Kristian D.:  I like the spice level. The noodles are less "starchy" than the cheap 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.
Kristian D.:  I heated a mug of water in the microwave for two minutes. Then I poured the soup base on top of the noodles, and poured the hot water on top of that. Then I put the top back on, and I let it sit for about five minutes. It was very easy to prepare.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Kristian D.:  I would tell them it is on the spicier side, but if you can take the heat, it's a good option.
