A Story by Megan M.

As a brand-new visitor to this site, I am overcome with a feeling of camaraderie. So thank you all for existing.

I have always hated cilantro. And growing up as a lover of Mexican food in Cal...



A Story by Kim

I don't remember my first run in with cilantro. I grew up in Texas, and love Tex-Mex. But it was actually after returning to New England and trying to find good Mexican that I have run into so many re...



A Story by Chai

First encountered at the newly opened Rainier Square food court. Delicious Greek, Thai, sushi, etc. Then a "healthy" Mex counter. I walk in and choked as the smell of delicious food was mix...



A Story by Marilyn

I can't remember my first run in with cilantro but I love Mexican food but hate cilantro so I spend most of my time picking it out of the salsa. Sometimes they cut it up so small I can't get it all ou...



A Story by Donna

I first ran across the stuff a few years ago when my sister-in-law made this "Mexican" meatloaf. She used fresh salsa with plenty of cilantro, instead of tomato sauce or ketchup. I ate it,...



A Story by Kgrames

I like just about every food. There are some items from the insect or mollusk world that I'll probably never try, but other than that am adventurous and love all kinds of cuisines.

I just joined this site, because of my recent lunch experience here at work (although I have been on this site reading Cilantro "Horror" stories) I HATE CILANTRO! (I was pounding on the keys...



A Story by Steve

At the very first dinner, with the family that were to be my inlaws, my girlfriend's mother made a tomato salad.
Normally I love tomato salad, so I took a huge helping.
At the first bite, I ta...

It was January 1983 and I was touring the Galapagos on a small boat, 8 tourists and 3 staff--a relatively low-budget way to explore these incredible islands. First evening we had freshly caught fish,...



A Story by Foodie

Can't believe that I actually found this site...I, too, am a cilantro HATER! I am almost 50 years old and it seems that it's only been in the last 15-20 years or so that cilantro is seemingly everywh...

I went on a romantic date with my then boyfriend to a swanky and artsy thai restaurant. We decided to order the crystal rolls and playfully feed eachother on the silk couch. Then i felt IT and my eyes...



A Story by Elizabeth

The college I went to boasted what might be the largest and most elaborate bank of vending machines ever assembled at that time. You could get everything from chips to soup to burritos. The vending ...



A Story by Julie

It happened about 15 years ago and I had never even heard the word cilantro before so had no idea what it was. We were eating at a Mexican food restaurant and the server set a bowl of salsa in front ...



A Story by Cheryl Abaravich

I first tasted it 19 years ago when eating at a Mongolian BBQ place. The icky taste was left on the grill and tainted my dish. Right then and there I knew it was awful. It started showing up all ove...



A Story by Gracie

Once I was cooking up some roasted red pepper soup. A friend had said it would be good to add in some cilantro. So I did.
All I could taste was the horrible cilantro. I hated it! It totally ruined...



A Story by Sleepy

Like most others, I first encountered this vile, disgusting ingrediant by chance through steak tacos. After inspecting the food to find the root cause of it, I saw the chopped up green leaves and, eve...



A Story by Martin

I grew up in a family that had a fairly limited taste in foods, and never encountered cilantro until this spring(I'm 30). In my wish to have a large edible garden in our new house's yard, I planted a ...

A Story by Jason Gregory Isaacs

My first experience with this vile, wretched weed was in Mexico in 1998. If there's one food I love and adore with the same maniacal intensity as I despise cilantro, it's avocados. That's why I was so...
