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 Matt C. from LA 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.
Matt C.:  The noodles were fiery to the tongue. They were soft enough. The noodles tasted as noodles should. I detected hints of vegetables. I prepared them in the microwave, following the instructions on the cup. I ate them all in one sitting and felt full afterwards.
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)?
Matt C.:  I might eat it with crackers next time or a beverage to cool my palate.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Matt C.:  I didn't detect much of a difference other than the spiciness. It was really hot and I enjoyed that.
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.
Matt C.:  I prepared it in the microwave as per the instructions on the cup. I cooked in on high for just short of three minutes. It was simple.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Matt C.:  The level of heat was fine. I think I had to blow on it a little. The spiciness was an 8 on a 1-10 scale.
“The level of heat was fine.”
