Highlights from SFoodie this week:
1. Joe Eskenazi, whose love for diners surpasses all of ours at SFoodie, writes a great guide to the five best diners in town -- one of which, he points out, is actually a hofbrau but feels like a diner. Also, we're reminded it's time to go back to Louis'.
4. Despite all the gifts kombucha supposedly gives our guts, most of it tastes either like vinegar or fruit soda that's only secretly fermented tea. W. Blake Gray, no kombucha fan, discovers the delicate flavors of House Kombucha, a locally made kombucha that tastes exactly what it is, only more aromatic.
5. This was the week of the shark -- the senate just passed a controversial statewide ban on the sale and import of shark fins, so it now goes to the governor. W. Blake Gray asks: Hey, if you're going to ban dried shark fin, why not genetically modified crops and bovine growth hormone, too?
