It was backpacking through Asia that introduced me to the disgusting taste of coriander, it was in almost everything I ordered, especially in India and noone could work out what taste it was I didn't ...



A Story by Mina

I was at Chipoltle and ordered my food. I didn't really care for the burrito, not enough flavor, so I decided to try the rice it came with. I took a bite and about threw up all over the place. I re...



A Story by Womber

I was really young when I first encountered cilantro. In Chinese cuisine, cilantro is used frequently to garnish or better (hah!) the taste of fresh food like steamed fish, seafood stews or congee. <...

Hello...I'd never really used cilantro before and decided to try it today in a big old pot of chili I'm making. OMG! It's horrible! My chili is usually so good and this time it's YUCK! Now I'm sitting...



A Story by Bob

Many years ago I became interested in Iranian food, and one ingredient frequently listed in herb mixes which was not available in Iowa at the time was cilantro. So I ordered some seed and planted it. ...

A Story by Summer

I absolutely hated cilantro upon my first encounter, in Mexican food like many others. I was 16 and out to dinner with my first boyfriend's family, for his birthday no less! I loved (and still do) M...



A Story by Laurel

Years ago, my husband and I had lunch at an El Torito in CA. I ordered some combo plate, and everything was tasty except ONE item. I could NOT figure out what was wrong with it; it tasted *spoiled* to...



A Story by Joe Barker

I don't remember the details but I distinctly remember the sensation of the first time I knowingly tasted cilantro. It was in a salsa. It's an understatement to say that I didn't remember tasting an...



A Story by Sam

Just a couple of days ago, I ran into my worst mishap yet with a stalk --a whole stalk!-- of cilantro. I was eating some Thai crispy chicken and rice with little flecks of what I thought was parsley i...



A Story by Lexi

I never knew what made the food taste so bad. I just knew that mum's frittata (sp?) smelled like cheese and fresh veg but tasted like no other horrible taste with the possible exception of when gran w...

In July 2010 I went to visit my friend in the Washington DC area. She took me to Chipotle Mexican Grill. This was my 1st time going to Chipotle as we did not have one in my area. I had heard many peop...



A Story by Adam Mitchell Bond

Oh, I do not like cilantro,
For I think it tastes like soap,
Like excretions from a beetle,
Like the breath of those who tope.

Oh, I do not like cilantro,
Of all the green her...

I am a vegetarian and am very allergic to Cilantro/Coriander. Eating out in St. Louis, MO is difficult. I love ethnic food, because as a vegetarian I have the most choices in ethnic restaurants. Ho...

A Story by Christine

Being raised in Southern California gave me several early opportunities to come across Mexico's favorite herb. It also allowed me to discover very early on that not only do I utterly loathe this evil ...



A Story by Allan

My first run in with this stuff was 4 days ago when a friend made me a salad with lots of this stuff spread over and thru the garden salad, and I mean LOTS of it. I didn't care for it that much but t...
