Roseville's Flame & Fire, an all you can eat Brazillian steakhouse opened in June, and the Sac Bee's Blair Anthony Robertson gives the restaurant its first restaurant critic review.
The meat is roasted over an open flame and has that hearty, seared and charred kind of texture and flavor. Most of it is cooked in the medium to medium-well range. It is good food, but it does not compare to a high-quality rib-eye or buttery-tender filet mignon cooked to perfection (or specification) and served as the focal point of a well-organized plate.
If you are looking for that, a traditional steakhouse will be more to your liking. You can focus on a single dish and won’t feel obligated to eat beyond your comfort zone...
In the end, if you’re the right kind of person – a hearty eater looking for something a little different and only slightly exotic – you’re going to be a fan of Flame and Fire.

I had not paid a visit to the place yet, but coincidentally, in the last week, I made plans with friends to give the place a try in the near future. I'll let you know how it goes.

Corainder: More fish sauce, please - So, who’s running this? I talked with the server who informed me that this is a Vietnamese family-owned business, run by a restauranteur who wanted to open a spot that serves food from his own culture. The problem is, they’re not. They wanted to translate South Sacramento Vietnamese cuisine to East Sacramento. So, they modified the menu to fit the perceived audience. That meant more vegetarian friendly options, non-offensive ingredients, and just a taste of fish sauce. Well, I say to Coriander, ‘more fish sauce, please’. It’s not too late. Let them hold their noses! Stink up the place! Ferment, ferment, ferment! Because you know, the people who really want to eat your food are going to stick around, and maybe even come back.
