Stance: I hate cilantro.

What does cilantro taste like to you?
Most Hated Cilantro-Containing Food:
Vietnamese noodle soup (pho) - the smell fills the whole restaurant
Do people in your family hate cilantro, too? Who?
my parents both hate it vehemently, we are a trendy chef's worst nightmare
If cilantro were a historical malevolent dictator, who would it be? Why?
My cilantro story, first experience, recent anecdote, rant, etc...

Click to read and comment on my story! For my parents' anniversary (they hate the foul weed too) we went to Roy's, a toney "Hawaiian fusion" restaurant. I had the forethought to ask the waiter if a dish contained cilantro before ordering it. He came back and informed me that it did, and that it was an integral part of the sauce and couldn't be omitted. This happened three or four more times. I ended up getting my fifth choice on the very limited menu, which was divine...but SERIOUSLY, chefs: there is more than one herb on the planet! Many of which do not taste like stink bugs mashed up inside a jock strap! Come on now!
