I always love Fuchow Fish Maw soup. I am a Hock Chiew. Are you one? Want to try Hock Chew Kongpian?

OIC, I'm Hokkien but I love to try food from all clans, only not enough time to prepare [too many things to try]. I like Fu Chow 'Ang Chow' dishes. Tried several before but didn't post the recipes. Must do soon cos' I have a bottle of homemade 'Ang Chow'. Can tell me more about this Hock Chiew Kongpian?
