Look what the tide dragged in: A new 16th Street ramen restaurant that’s declaring itself trendy with the name Ushio Ramen, which translates to “tide” and can imply opportunity or trendiness.

The new business at 3128 16th Street (between Valencia and Guerrero) replaces short-lived boba tea shop Katea. It opened softly this week: Hours are 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Sunday to Thursday (closed Tuesday) and 5 p.m. to 12 a.m., and a peek at the menu is below.

Ted Hui, a general manager who explained the meaning of Ushio’s name to Hoodline, says that Ushio comes from the owner of Katea, who also operates tea shops in San Jose and Four Seasons Hot Pot, in Daly City.
