Interesting snack food in Chinatown

I was walking around the East Broadway section of Chinatown (where the Fouzhou restaurants are) this Sunday and I kept noticing some fried savory pastries that I couldn't recognize. Finally, while walking under the Manhattan Bridge on Division St., I stopped by a cart right under the overpass and tried a pretty good snack that I was wondering if someone could help identify. It was a fried dough stuffed with vegetables (sprouts, scallions, maybe some other stuff) and pork. The dough was studded with peanuts. The dough itself was very different then other breads I have had in chinatown. It was much more like a fried doughnut (although not sweet). The snack was good, though greasy, but I want to try some of the other items on the cart such as some greasy pork buns which looked good and another fried dough thin, this one coated with sesame and stuffed with pork. Any help in identifying these items would be great.
