I went over to my friend Lily's house on the promise that she was going to make burgers and that they were going to be AWESOME. Turns out it was actually her mother making the burgers, and the woman w...

I managed a fastfood Mexican restaurant about 14 years ago. In the mornings, I chopped the cilantro for the pico de gallo sauce. I can still smell it in my nightmares. That horrid smell would perme...

At a fancy-pants pizza/pasta place in Atlanta they have a bbq chicken pizza, with cilantro. I always make them swap it out for basil!...

I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Back in 1989, Cilantro was an almost exotic thing to know about here, but I happened to live for half a year in Bogotá, Colombia, and stumble upon this kitchen plagu...

The first time I discovered the nasty herb, I was working at a restaurant here in Northern California (as a dishwasher. My first teenage job.)

We received free meals, but the restaurant was a...

I am lucky enough to have lived in the hindu kingdom of Nepal. This place has a lot going for it, but one big problem (besides the political intrigue of current events) is that these people infuse ev...



A Story by Jami Bernard

Ah, I remember it well -- the very first time I experienced cilantro. It was in the early '80s, and the foul thing appeared in a container of take-out Vietnamese food. Perhaps this was cilantro's firs...



A Story by Dave

My story starts with a family torn apart by cilantro, but ends with forgiveness. I call it, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”

About a year ago, my brother married an amazing woman....



A Story by Billie Nell

I hate cilantro, I mean I really, really hate cilantro. I love green, and I love everything that is paired with cilantro, I even love the shape of it and the way it grows. But it cannot be trusted. ...



A Story by Roy

I first ran across cilantro when trying a spring roll at a Vietnamese place in 1990. Up until then, I had lived a wonderful cilantro-free existence.

By 1995, it seemed I could no longer orde...



A Story by Kris Hirst

I spent the better part of 1986 in Mexico, and the worst thing I had to eat down there was a lizard taco. I thought it was the lizard, until I returned to the states, and my roomies held a bit dinner ...

One time I was eating a burrito and realized I had bitten off a piece of the tinfoil in which it was wrapped. I quickly expelled the metallic shred from my mouth only to find out it was a piece of ci...



A Story by Mike

Unlike most of the stories I've read, I started out neutral on cilantro. I have no real opinion on the taste, but there are some definite unpleasant associations there. Whenever I get that taste in ...

One lovely Florida day I was out having some quality mother-daughter time with you guessed it--my mom! (Funny how that works.) Feeling the hunger coming on we popped into a resturaunt with a chic tak...



A Story by Steve

I don't have a very refined sense of taste, so I can't really say I'm that offended by the taste of cilantro. But - it always gets stuck in my craw. I really hate that. I feel like I'm hacking up a ha...



A Story by Shaun

Hello there,

My Cilantro story is interesting, as my first run in with Cilantro was not to ingest it, but to inhale it. Before I go on, this is NOT a story about smoking cilantro :)


A Story by Paul

I hate the taste of cilantro when the plant is flowering only. I attribute this to the Coriander flavour but can't verify as i don't go near the stuff anymore on account of the terrible flavour over-...



A Story by Pandora

Though I hate cilantro I can acknowledge, but not condone, its existance in culinary dishes of such countries such as Thailand, Mexico, Spain and India to name a few.

However, under no circum...



A Story by FactWino

I hate cilantro. There, I've said it. I live in New Mexico, where the New Mexican food doesn't have cilantro, or at least it didn't used to. The cilantro wave hit and what used to be perfectly good...
