A Story by Millie Jolivette

I was dining at the new Cheddar's Casual Café in our city and ordered their Chicken Tortilla Soup. The very first bite was disgusting and I gagged. I didn't know about cilantro until I later saw it ...



A Story by Rosie G.

I've hated the stuff since the first time I tasted it. We never had it growing up, so when I first tasted it I was in shock. It was the most disgusting thing that ever touched my tongue. After that I...



A Story by Ms. Lillian

About fifteen years ago, I was eating lunch in Ensenada, Mexico. I asked for some verde, cabbage, something fresh with the meal, and got a plate covered in cilantro. OK, I ate around it. But the nasty...

My first encounter with cilantro (though I didn't know it at the time), was when I was at a nice Asian restaurant and my friends had ordered these fresh spring rolls (they aren't the deep fried ones)....



A Story by The Weeping

I was innocent before I first ate cilantro. Innocent and pure. The sky was blue, the sun was shining, food was tasty. Then I was corrupted. It was a day like any other. It was lunchtime. I should have...

I was pretty young. I think I was maybe 10 or 11 years old. We had a school garden and had planted cilantro (called coriander where I live). Anyway, when the time came to harvest the stuff I noticed i...



A Story by Kra

My family and I were visiting Mexico for the first time. We went out to a nice restaurant and I saw my absolute favorite food on the menu: Scallops! It was just an appetizer and it wasn't real cheap...



A Story by Alasdair Thomson

Rather than tell about my own first experiences with cilantro/coriander, as a language professional, I thought it might be a good idea to provide the word for cilantro and a phrase to the effect you d...



A Story by V M Collins

Indian friends taught me how to make authentic curry. I had no problems with dried powdered coriander (dhanya). It

A Story by Les Pheil

No big deal, I moved to New Mexico almost 3 years ago, and LOTS and LOTS of their recipes call for Cilantro aka ( Dirty Dishwater taste.) Do I drink dirty dish water on a regular basis? No, but that w...



A Story by Bigal

The first time I ate the devil herb I didn't understand how I could so quickly go from loving my local thai joint, to hating almost every meal on the menu. It tasted like a foul soap that had been fa...

I love both Tex-Mex and Italian food. For the past 2 years I often would get physically ill after eating some dishes and the past six months or so I would wake up during the night violently ill when w...



A Story by Slothy

I remember the first time I encountered cilantro like it was yesterday. I was young, I'd say roughly 10 years old. We used to go out to eat a lot as a family, and our favourite Wednesday spot was the ...



A Story by Joseph

I was probably in my early 20's when I first encountered cilantro. Never having been much of a fan of Mexican food (which tends to include an obscene amount of the vile poison), I hadn't ever eaten ...



A Story by Jennifer

I notice everyone is saying Cilantro tastes like soap to them. Interesting. I have always thought it tastes like a HUGE mouthful of freshly mowed grass.

Now don't get me wrong. I love the sme...

I lived in Mexico when I was 6 to around 9. We lived in a nice neighborhood surrounded by thick concrete walls. Although some houses had grassy yards, the space in between the houses was wasteland. Th...
