[tlhIngan Hol] HochHom in noun-noun constructions

There's something I'm wondering with regards to {HochHom} in noun-noun

And perhaps my confusion comes from the fact, that I don't understand fully
the meaning of the english "almost all".

So I need to ask..

There are ten pies. An alien walks in and starts eating. When he's
finished, someone comments by saying "he ate almost each pie".

What does this mean? That, lets say, initially there were 10 pies, and now
there only two whole pies left? Or that the alien in question, ate a
portion from each one of the ten pies, and in result we now have the
leftovers from each one of the ten initial pies?
