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 Garth N. from AL 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.
Garth N.:  There was more of a tomato and vegetable taste to the broth compared to other noodle bowls, definitely no meat flavors. Very spicy. But not while eating, more of an after effect. The noodles were common to many noodle bowl style of products. Good if you're tired of the over salty meat flavors that other similar products typically offer.
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)?
Garth N.:  I would probably use the microwave method instead of simple hot water method. Additionally, I would need something like crackers or bread to offset the heat of the spiciness.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Garth N.:  While spicy, it did not have the overly salty chicken or beef flavor that's common in this type of product. It also had more vegetables in it and the broth had a very pleasant tomatoey base taste.
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.
Garth N.:  Hot water method - I put the soup base and hot water in the cup and closed the lid. After approximately 3 minutes I opened, stirred the cup and enjoyed.
“The broth had a very pleasant tomatoey base taste.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Garth N.:  I would describe this as one of the spicier noodle bowls I have purchased. But it was a good tasting spicy instead of just hot for the sake of being hot.
