What are the best dishes at Fung's Kitchen, Houston?

I'm working my way through the menu at Fung's Kitchen, located on the west side of US-59 (Southwest Freeway) near Fondren.

Have been finding mixed results. Would appreciate any suggestions for the best dishes to get there. I had heard that Fung's has the best Chinese chef in town. I was also glad to find clean restrooms and floors, unlike many of my favorite Chinese holes-in-the wall.

I heard that house specialities (located on the left side of the menu) are the ones to get, since they're cooked by the owner or head chef.

So far I've tried:

Salted anchovies-fun to try, probably great if you're sitting with friends trying to work through a bottle of good Scotch.
Eggplant and garlic hot pot-okay, not as good as Canton's version
Country style bok choy leaves-really baby bok choy, I would order this again. It's stir fried.
The big oysters with scallions and garlic-good, but this are stir fried and put back on the shell. I prefer the style at Sinh Sinh or Canton.
Fried bean curd with snow pea leaves-nothing wrong with it, very tender bean curd and a pretty dish, nothing special either.

Non-house specials I've tried:
Duck rolls-very good, will get these again.
Shrimp rolls-okay, but duck are much better and more unique.

I haven't tried the lobster because I'm avoiding the more expensive dishes at Fung's. I also heard they serve a black chicken, which is brought in frozen from China. Black skin, black meat, supposedly doesn't taste any better but is a delicacy anyway.

* Any other "must try" dishes at Fung's?

Also, how's the Fung's at Sugarland. I hear it's a different style of restaurant, but is it good?
