What does cilantro taste like to you?
Most Hated Cilantro-Containing Food:
Do people in your family hate cilantro, too? Who?
My wife love the crap. Is that grounds for divorce?
If cilantro were a historical malevolent dictator, who would it be? Why?
Hitler and Stalin: they were vicious, overbearing, murdering filth, much like cilantro
My cilantro story, first experience, recent anecdote, rant, etc...

Click to read and comment on my story! I'm not sure when I first encountered cilantro. Growing up in the South West, I ate plenty of Mexican food and I remember, on blessedly rare occasions, the food tasted vile, bitter. To me, it tasted exactly like the smell of pencil shavings. I didn't know what it was until I moved to California, the cilantro capital of the world. Cilantro is used more in Mexican food here than beans and chile seasoning. They not only ruin perfectly good enchiladas and burritos with it, the sadists put liberal amounts of the filth in the salsa, too, providing a double dose of putridness to the unwary. Those who love the stuff should be blindfolded and forced to compare the smell of a pencil sharpener with a bowl of cilantro, then choose which is which. Once they make their choice, they should then be forced to eat it. Guaranteed, those eating pencil shavings will swear off of cilantro for the rest of their lives.
