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 Anish S. from MN 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.
Anish S.:  The taste of the broth is sweet and spicy but has a strong tomato flavor too. The noodles are just the right length but a little too flaky. The noodles and broth together make a great taste and combination, however the tomato is overpowering.
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)?
Anish S.:  I would make some white, boiled rice with it for sure. Also, I would add some soy sauce and my own vegetables and chicken.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Anish S.:  I like the little vegetables and how fast it is done in comparison to ramen. Also, the broth is more flavored with a strong and spicy flavor which ramen tends to lack.
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.
Anish S.:  I first read the directions and put the flavoring in. Then, I poured cold water to the inside line and put it into the microwave. I warmed it for 2 minuets first, then 40 seconds, and then another 30 seconds.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Anish S.:  The general spice was around 5/10 and the level of heat at first is very hot. Eat it after 3 minutes and only eat if you like the spice.
“Noodles and broth together make a great taste and combination.”
