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 Alex B from MI 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.
Alex B:  The broth itself was wonderfully spicy. The noodles were nicely soft without being soggy or rubbery and the broth's flavor seeped into and permeated the noodles very well. Every bite was flavorful.
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)?
Alex B:  My favorite ramen trick is to crack an egg over the mix, provided the both is hot enough to cook it. In the case of the shin cup I might need to use a carton of egg whites instead. They come pasteurized so it's not really a health risk if I'm off on cooking time, and you can't really throw a paper cup back on the stove if you mess that part up.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Alex B:  I really liked the spicy flavor, I adore spicy food. The dried veggies are also a nice touch, with other brands I need to add my own.
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.
Alex B:  I microwaved the shin cup. It was very convenient, though I'm not sure if I'd consider it on-the-go food considering how hot it was out of the microwave. Maybe if you had some ice cubes to cool it down quickly.
“ Every bite was flavorful.”

Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Alex B:  I'd say the shin cup is at least moderately spicy, any more heat and I would only be able to enjoy the burn not the actual flavor of the food.
