Sōmen are usually served cold with a light flavored dipping broth or tsuyu, and noodles are dipped into the sauce, not poured over like other foods. The sauce is usually a katsuobushi based sauce that can be flavored with Welsh onion, ginger, or myoga. In the summer time sōmen chilled with ice is a popular meal to help stay cool. Sōmen served in hot soup is usually called "nyumen," and is frequently served in the winter much like soba or udon would be.
