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 Joe P. from IA 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.
Joe P.:  The broth was spicy but not so much to overwhelm the flavor. The noodles stood out with a nice consistency.

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)?
Joe P.:  First, I would cook the noodles alone without the soup base in order to remove excess water. Then, I would add in some diced chicken and peas with the soup base.
Q: What did you like most about the Shin Cup, and how does it differ from other ramen you’ve tried?
Joe P.:  The noodles stood out as higher quality. Usually ramen tastes more processed and cardboard like.
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.
Joe P.:  I made it in the microwave following the directions. It was easy to prepare and convenient.
Q: If you were recommending this product to someone else, how would you describe the level of heat and general spiciness?
Joe P.:  It's not overly spicy, just a little bit of heat to enhance the flavor. Most people would enjoy it despite being "spicy".
