What are some authentic Chinese street food?

I know baozi and dumplings. I'm more interested in the small dim sum or less known snacks like in Xi'an or Chengdu. Recipes would be great. Also I had a sort of cake filled with a type of cream in Xi'an this past summer, but I can't figure out the name (Similar to a Shi Zi Bing)! Thanks!

You are right! This cake was similar but had a different filling. What is the Chinese name for the marinated meat? 肉夹馍?
