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 Tyler G. from KS 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.
Tyler G.:  The broth was very smooth and provided enough kick without being unbearably spicy. There were notes of cayenne, green onions, and pepper. The carrots added a crunch texture which paired well with the 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)?
Tyler G.:  I would probably add a few more pieces of meat into the broth and noodles. By doing this, it would enhance the flavor my the meat encapsulating the broth while adding additional protein.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Tyler G.:  I liked that it was spicy but not too spicy. I also liked that it was quick to make on the go and came in a container that I could cook it in. There was definitely much more flavor in the Shin Cup than what you get with normal 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.
Tyler G.:  I loved that it came with a cup that I could just make the Shin right away versus needing to have my own cup. This is very helpful when I am at work as I don't have to pack a whole lot, just this one cup for lunch.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Tyler G.:  The heat and spiciness was perfect as it was spicy but not so spicy that you lost the flavor and texture of the noodles and broth. It definitely is not a choice for those who cannot handle a good amount of spice though.
