Shepherd's Purse Dumplings?

Was at a Shanghai style restaurant in San Jose where I noticed a number of pork Shepherd's Purse items on the menu. (At the time I had no idea that Shepherd's Purse was some kind of plant.) There were pork Shepherd's purse dumplings, wonton and pancakes. I had the pancake, which turned out to be a pocket shaped exactly like a letter sized envelope, complete with backside envelope folds, deep fried until crispy. I had never seen any items like this before, but was wondering whether they're available in the Los Angeles area, but perhaps under a different name.
