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 Patrick K. from MA 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.
Patrick K.:  The broth is salty and savory. The noodles were cooked not that mushy and held their own. The flavor is a good spice not that hot but not bland.
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)?
Patrick K.:  I would add some sort of protein, chicken or pork. I would also use it as the base of a larger soup.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Patrick K.:  Easy to make and eat. You can eat it at your desk.
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.
Patrick K.:  I added hot water to melt the spices. I than put it in the microwave to heat it up. This allowed the spices to melt and be a better soup.
“5 minutes for lunch and it's a solid option.”
