Mighty Dog and Acai

The acai is the real deal like they serve in Rio. Delicious! Forget the syrupy garbage they call "acai" (but is really just acai flavored sherbert) and sell in all the chain smoothie shops.

Mightydog and Acai offers unique, delicious food at a great value and with an incredible experience. The truck is a beautiful and inviting green with lively graphics and often music, and the owner greets everyone with an inviting smile like old friends. The backbone of their dogs are a delicious, sweet bun and a big, juicy, meaty hot dog that would keep your father happy at the ball park. On top of that, they generously pile on all sorts of exotic and delicious Brazilian and Latin delicacies. Good ropa vieja is hard enough to find in DC, let a lone piled on an already delicious hot dog. Plantains, pico de gallo, and tons of other great stuff I don't even know the name for. The most picky foodie would be pleased. And the acai? Out of this world. If all you know of acai is the name being slapped onto some sports drink, or some half frozen yogurt monstrosity at Smoothie King, you are missing out on this one. Not even the frozen packs of acai from Sambazon come close. This stuff is right up there with what you will get in Brazil. Fresh, authentic, pure ingredients. If you haven't had acai before, it tastes like a mix of mocha and blueberry, high in antioxidants, and they sweeten it with bananas, granola, and coconut. NOM. If you have ANY room after all that (unlikely) they have take away deserts for the chocolate fan that will satisfy your sweet tooth. All in all, this is a really unique food truck that will keep both your stomach and your wallet happy. There really is something for everyone here.
