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 Daniel M. 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.
Daniel M.:  The broth was very spicy with a nice kick felt in the lips. Noodles had an almost undercooked not ready texture (despite following cooking instructions and letting sit over 3 mins). The taste of noodles and broth was satisfying, not very salty but nice and spicy.
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)?
Daniel M.:  I would enhance my Shin Cup mealtime experience by adding little more salt and reducing the high level of spice just a touch (not a lot). Maybe add little carrot pieces to the soup as well. Also pair it with a sparkling water like acqua panna to clear down.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Daniel M.:  Quality of overall product, from packaging to noodles. Has a more gourmet feel.
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.
Daniel M.:  I took it home and boiled a pot of water, avoiding the microwave. After adding the spices and boiling water, I let sit for 4-5 mins then gave it a taste, added a little salt and it was ready.
“Has a more gourmet feel.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Daniel M.:  This is not your typical cup of ramen. Nice and spicy and clears your sinuses. Would say level 4 out of 5 on spicy.
