There is a little bit of dried abalone, but the taste of Qie also looks similar. When eating, white pepper, zhejiang vinegar and sesame oil are usually added. In Hong Kong, vendors generally sell more than one stall, along with shark's fin and pangolin bone soup with greens, and many people mix the two kinds of snacks together, which is not specific and very different.
