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 Leo D. from NY 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.
Leo D.:  In the broth I taste a lot of spicy flavor, as well as some onion and other vegetables which I can't quite identify from the taste. The noodles have the right amount of firmness to them, without being too firm or too soft. Overall, the taste of the noodles in the broth is very good and not overly salty.
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)?
Leo D.:  I would enhance my mealtime experience of the Shin Cup by adding an egg or some meat. My choice of meat to add would be either chicken or pork as I think they would both go well with the existing flavors in the Shin Cup.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Leo D.:  What I like most about the Shin Cup is the spiciness! The spicy flavor is strong but not so strong that it's unpleasant. How does this ramen differ from other ramen I've tried? Many other ramens have too many other flavors like garlic, etc which are overwhelming and drown out the spicy flavor. This ramen doesn't have too many unnecessary flavors going on and it lets the spicy flavor shine through.
“Lets the spicy flavor shine through.”

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.
Leo D.:  I prepared the Shin Cup at home in the microwave. It was very simple and convenient because I needed no extra dishes or anything more than water and a microwave. I think preparing this on the go would be very easy and mess-free, as long as you have access to hot water or a microwave.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Leo D.:  I would describe the level of heat and general spiciness as a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10. The spiciness is definitely not for people who don't like spicy foods, but for someone who likes spicy foods it isn't overwhelming.
