Japan: Sōmen noodles そうめん

Sōmen is a very thin noodle (less than 1.3 mm diameter) served cooked and cold.  The sauce is presented in a separate bowl.  The noodles are gathered up in chopsticks, dipped in the sauce, and then slurped up.  Yum.  

Sōmen is a common food and is served simply. 

Below is a very fancy presentation. Cool.
I do not know the popularity of sōmen food art.
