FUJIAN (FUKIEN) STYLE CHINESE RESTAURANT IN NEW JERSEY

Hi:
I love Fujian (Fukien) style chinese cuisine.
Many moons ago, there was only one Fukienese restaurant in NYC's Chinatown (FOO JOY) that specialized in cuisine from the Fukien Province in China. Sadly, it was closed down in the late 70s by the gendarmes because of gambling activities. My very favorite dish at Foo Joy was "Fukienese Pork Chops" (very thin pork chops marinated in a red wine sediment paste, then deep-fried and served with a spicy dark soy-based sauce). These pork chops were seriously delicious!
I have posted this same topic on "The Best" and also the "Manhattan" forums of CH but no one seems to be aware of any Chinese restaurant that specializes in Fukien style cuisine.
Does it exist in New Jersey? Thanks. Zabar
