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 Matthew B. from MD 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.
Matthew B.:  The broth has a nice consistency. The initial flavor is beef, with a spicy heat, of a chili pepper finish. The noodles are firm yet tender which I like very much. The combination of the spicy beef broth with the noodles is delicious.

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)?
Matthew B.:  To use it as meal starter or to enhance the product, I would add thin slices of beef and snow peas. Which would create a heartier meal to take it from a quick soup to a more well rounded entree.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Matthew B.:  What I like most about the Shin Cup was the overall flavor and heat. Most other similar products do not compare in flavor. Usually the overwhelming flavor is salt, this product has a nice balance of flavors with the salt level being minimal.
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.
Matthew B.:  It is Incredibly easy to prepare. All I did was have to boil water in the stove top.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Matthew B.:  I would describe the heat level as perfect if you enjoy something spicy.
