"Gom bian" (光饼) (or Kompia)- a Foochow delicacy made with flour, baked in an oven and with sesame on top.It can be eaten either with or without filling. The one kosong(means empty) is the traditional, the rest with filling are the improved version. You can see market selling the one fill with meat and a special gravy.

There are 2 types of kompia, one is the one I introduced just now which tasted salty, another is called ZhenDong which tasted sweet, it is softer and fluffy. Both types are advised to eat while hot else it will become harder, so normally we will try to re-heat it and it will taste better.
