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 Mark G. from VA 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.
Mark G.:  The broth taste like a spicy tomato and garlic. Spicy enough to make the tip of my tongue hot. The noodles are soft and easy to chew. With both the noodles and broth combined taste like a spicy tomato noodle soup.
“It has tasty vegetables and spices to make my mouth burst.”

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)?
Mark G.:  I would add some beef to it. I would mix the shin cup with boneless chicken breast to make a nice spicy chicken stew.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Mark G.:  It was easy to cook. It is more flavorful than ramen noodles. It has tasty vegetables and spices to make my mouth burst.
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.
Mark G.:  I prepared it in the microwave. I poured the soup base and added tap water. It really makes a fast meal. Very filling. The flavor of the shin cup lasts a long time after eating it.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Mark G.:  Spicy enough but not a hot spice. Also spicy enough to be very tasteful.
