Stance: I hate cilantro.

What does cilantro taste like to you?
Most Hated Cilantro-Containing Food:
Any Mexican food with cilantro makes me sad, because I LOVE Mexican food so much.
Do people in your family hate cilantro, too? Who?
My parents dislike it, but my twin sister and husband think it is "okay" - what?!?!
If cilantro were a historical malevolent dictator, who would it be? Why?
Certainly Hitler. It's that evil.
My cilantro story, first experience, recent anecdote, rant, etc...
Here is my rant: If a restaurant is going to put cilantro in a dish they serve, they had better damn well list the offensive ingredient on the menu. I'm sad when I see it on the menu on a dish I would otherwise love to order, but I get furious when a plate is set in front of me with cilantro on it, with no prior warning on the menu or by the waitstaff. I always send my dish back if this happens. Sometimes I just say that I am allergic so that the waitstaff won't spit in my food, but sometimes I will ask to speak with the manager, too. I once ordered some queso at a Mexican restaurant and their queso listed cilantro as a garnish on the menu. I asked the waiter to just leave it off for me. I got the queso served to me with EXTRA cilantro. WHAT?!?!?
More about me:
My friends all know I hate cilantro. They even sometimes send me recipies which include cilantro as a joke. Ha. Ha.
