Have you ever had Gokong Soup?

While it is Chinese, it is a purely Tsinoy thing.

Try to search it on Baidu or Google, and all hits will be from the Philippines. The Bahay Tsinoy team also asked friends from Quanzhou and Xiamen if they recognize the words and the dish, they all said nope.

“Kong” is to cook on a low fire until the meat gets soft. “Go” or “Ngo” might refer to the number of meats used. In general, the ingredients are sea cucumber, pork tendons, pork intestines, pork skin, and chicken.
