Hello, my name is Roman and I am officially addicted to Tacos Degollado. Trully, it is a sincere addiction. It was my mission last year (2013) to visit all the food trucks around Des Moines Metro area to find the best food and the best service. Let me say, after going and eating at 6 trucks, this is the Place. Read Full Story
Welcome to My Blog!
I’m Roman and this is where I share my obsession with oranges, mustaches and other random ‘stuff’.
I am writing about my experiences, business, my inventions, day-to-day babble, web experiments, illustrations, reviews of the places I eat, and the movies I watch. Basically, everything!

It has been a while since my last Weekend Movies Review, unfortunately, it has been crazy few weeks. I have quit my job at Flying Hippo Web and moved on to work at Shift Interactive in West Des Moines.
Even though I was swamped with a bunch of things in my life, I still was able to squeeze few movies into the past two weekends. As usual, it has been a very enjoyable and pleasant experience just to relax at home, on the couch, and watch a few movies with my dear wife.
Elegant black tablecloth, ambient lighting and the sounds from the kitchen just few feet away from the dinner tables. These things only briefly describe a classy and inviting interior of this little French restaurant on Ingersoll Avenue. Bistro Montage, in my opinion, is the place to experience the romantic night and the best French cuisine in Des Moines with your lady, or your man.
You know how the ‘average’ weekend goes usually… It’s Friday, right around 5 PM, you can’t wait to get home to your wife and kids and you want to do so much: to finish all these awesome house keeping projects, spend time by doing something ‘fun’ and then the Saturday comes and you decide that you don’t really feel like driving anywhere and just want to chill at home with your family?
Walking in the door, I am welcomed by a large-size golden Buddha. He greets me with his full belly and a happy wide smile, the sounds of numerous TVs around the dining area and random chit chat is part of the usual scene at Pho888. Located on the Second Avenue near the Asian Market, it is one of the gems in Des Moines. Good food, good people and great place to experience a little piece of Vietnam.
To the point – Pho888 is the Best Vietnamese Restaurant in Des Moines! I will honor it as “The Des Moines Gem” because it’s often overlooked over the more ‘popular’ Vietnamese places. Let me back off a little here to take some time and explain why I love this place…
