RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. — The Flame Broiler on Haven Avenue is the newest addition to Rancho Cucamonga’s Healthy RC Dining Program. The city initiative teams up with local restaurants to offer healthy meals when dining out.
“The reason why we open this franchise is to offer a healthy choice for the community and I personally believe in the healthy lifestyle,” said Ferry Tasmin, owner and operator of the restaurant.
He says eating at The Flame Broiler combined with exercise has helped him slim down and lose much needed weight.
“I have three kids—ranging from 12 to 18 years old,” the restaurant’s owner-operator explained. “They are all growing right now and I want to be a good example for them.”
The Flame Broiler offers a choice of fresh chicken or Angus beef or the popular half-and-half option. The best part is there’s no added MSG’s, dairy, trans fat, skin, frying or KFC’s. In another words, it’s good for you!
“We use the premium non-GMO rice that we got from northern California,” he said. “So we don’t use any processed meat or any processed food in our facility.”
Vegetables are prepared fresh each morning. Every bowl or plate comes with a selection of carrots, broccoli and cabbage.
“Everything is fresh and good for your health and your body.”
Ordering is as easy as 1-2-3. First, select the size: Mini bowl, regular size bowl or plate. Then, select your protein: Chicken, Angus beef or a combination of the two.
“Pretty soon, we’re going to add Tofu to our line-up for the protein,” Tasmin said.
Finally, choose between white rice, brown rice or steamed vegetables. Guests can select a mixture of rice and veggies if they choose.
“We have a lot of people coming out from the gym concerned about their protein,” the owner-operator explained.
Customers we spoke to said they appreciate having a healthy restaurant in their community. Rancho Cucamonga resident Michael Baughn said he stops by the Flame Broiler at least once a week, if not more.
“I’m really glad that they have all of the vegetables they have available to me because I am vegan,” Baughn said. “Therefore, I have to have a veggie bowl. There’s very few places available to have that kind of thing.”
Tasmin said he’s partnered with local schools in Rancho Cucamonga to help students make healthier choices. The Flame Broiler has assisted in their fundraising efforts as well.
“I believe nowadays people are concerned more about their health,” the restaurant’s owner-operator explained. “They want to live longer. We’re just here to give them a choice.”
