I am a builder and repairer of musical instruments, including drums. I'm also pretty open minded about food - I've tried most types of locally available (US) ethnic foods, and have eaten rattle snake,...



A Story by Coriander Hater

I am English, so we call it coriander over here, and I have always hated it. However, I have recently discovered that it doesn't have the same effect on me if it is a) chopped really finely and b) so...



A Story by Mary Ann

For years I thought I was alone in how cilantro tastes to me. For me, there is no good way to discribe it to those who taste it differently. I wish I liked it, or could even tolerate it. I love Mexica...



A Story by Alex

I have always hated cilantro. All my friends are aware of that. On Passover, the tradition is to dip parsley in salt water. In college, at our Hillel passover, I had about 2 or 3 glasses of wine be...



A Story by Giselle

I'm from latin America and back about 27 years ago I would occasionaly taste something wrong with some foods I would have at Pot lucks and parties with friends.

One day we had met a wonderfu...

I first came across cilantro in university when I started dating a Taiwanese girl. Her mother had used it in something that she sent along with me to school. I recall my first bite vividly. It was vil...

I would really like to know WHY it is so hard for waiters/waitresses/cooks to understand the request, "Can I have that without any cilantro garnish please?" Of course it's understandable tha...



A Story by EEGreenBunny

I have never liked cilantro. Heaven knows I tried to make peace with it. When I went vegetarian in the late '80s, I made a good faith effort to tolerate it. To no avail, however, did I ever acquire a ...



A Story by Cassie

I am so glad to have found others out there that share my intense hatred of cilantro. For years I have been suffering with the task of picking it off tacos, avoiding eating salsa with friends, and def...



A Story by Ethyl Lyons

Unlike the average cilantro hater, I don't care about the taste. I am actually allergic to it. People hide cilantro in everything! There are two mexican restaurants in town that I won't even walk into...



A Story by Mike

Thankfully, my mother never used cilantro in any dish prepared while I grew up, but shortly after leaving the nest I began my hatred for the most vile of earthly substances. I was probably in my late...



A Story by Karlus

I grew up cooking on a cast-iron pan (you need oil in the pan to cook with.) When I was 13, I went camping and someone cooked a fish and left the oil in the pan. I cooked some scrambled eggs in that f...



A Story by Artzau

I'm an Irisher from Northern Ireland and love Mexican, Korean, Ethiopian, Thai, Vietnamese and Sze huan food. If it's spicy and hot, I'll eat it. However, I'm also allergic to onions and destest cil...

So happy I'm not the only one! I've always loved spicy foods and can go through a jar of salsa + bag of tortilla chips in about a week. Only problem is, I'm a college student with no car, the nearest ...



A Story by Bill Kilpatrick

I just heard about this site and had to come see it for myself. Kudos to all who are honest-to-goodness cilantro haters. I read somewhere that Julia Childs admitted to hating cilantro, to the point ...



A Story by Barry

My first run in with this bitter sock flavored crap weed was in my early 20s at an upscale Thai food restaurant in California that my step mom took me to when we went on a trip to E3 to get to know ea...



A Story by Anonymous Cilantro H

I went to Barberito's, a Mexican restaurant, and asked for the salsa. Sadly for me, the main ingredients in the limited edition salsa were tomato sauce and herbs, including cilantro. The moment the vi...



A Story by Roxcie

I was at a Mexican restaurant, in '93 when I tasted Cilantro. It was in the Pica De Gallo that came with the fajitas. I told the waiter something was wrong with the Pica, because it tasted bitter (lik...



A Story by Cilantro Lover

I was at the store looking for herbs which my recipe called for. I couldn't find the shelf with the herbs, so I asked some guy who worked there. He pointed to the right, and I almost fainted. The only...



A Story by JOCinPWC

I have hated cilantro for so long, I simply can't remember the first time I experienced this vile weed. But I do have two different restaurant stories.

Years ago, I was eating at Chili's and...
