A Story by Jeff DeVore

We have some dear friends from El Salvador who put Cilantro in EVERYTHING! Yuk! It tastes like they spilled chlorine in the food. Guacamole, Salsa, Soups... everything I would love if it didn't have t...



A Story by Julie

I'm happy to say I've contributed to the Cilantro-hating moevment by creating new members - literally. I've hated cilantro all my life and my friends and family mock my hatred. Well, recently we wer...



A Story by Roving Thundercloud

I'm originally from Oregon, but we moved to New Mexico for a few years when I was a kid. There, "salsa" or "hot sauce" meant "pureed chiles," and I loved it. But by the...



A Story by Stephanie

For a long time I didn't know it was Cilantro that I hated. I would sometimes smell or taste it and go, "what is that disgusting smell/taste?" The worst offender is my Mom's Spanikopeta. ...



A Story by John

My first, and only, cilantro disaster occurred when I was 28 years old in 1986. There was an upscale Mexican restaurant near my home that my cousin wanted to check out. He was a manager over 5 resta...



A Story by Rob

I, like many of you first experience cilantro in Mexican.

I could never figure out why I so detested salsa at "authentic" Mexican restaurants. As a child, I loved new and differe...

I was traveling with family in Hawaii about four years ago. One day we went to a Luau - you know, where they serve you all sorts of traditional Hawaiian food. I was quite dismayed to find out that a...



A Story by Janis Dodson

I was a chaperone for Hands Across the Border, a student exchange program in Arizona and Mexico. Us parents got to go first to scope out the situation. On the long bus ride down I looked forward to ...



A Story by Barbara C.

My first experience was many years ago, as I am 73, and buying it for a recipe. the minute I began to chop it up, I felt a bad smell in my nose and it smellled like my cat's box, if I forgot to clean...



A Story by Matt

Having grown up in Colorado, a veritable Mexican-food paradise, I can't go more than a couple of days without a burrito or a nice relleno. For years upon years, my addiction was fed easily and succes...



A Story by

When I was, maybe, 19, I went on a music retreat which was held at some hippie haven. They served burritos for dinner the first night we were there. I didn't think they were very good, but hey, I wa...



A Story by Rich

My first (and last, God willing) run-in with Cilantro occurred not a week ago at a little place called Donny P's.

Also known as Don Pablo's, its a great Mexican chain restaurant. Fun atmosph...



A Story by James L

Wow..Where have you been all my life? I've been looking for a site like this for a long time. *sigh of relief*

So my first memory of cilantro destroyed my childhood. Unlike most people who ha...



A Story by Phillip Wade

I grew up in New Mexico in the 50's and 60's. As far as I know, this disgusting weed was unknown there. It was only when I moved to California, I discovered the foul taste. I had no clue as to why ...



A Story by Chris

Hi, my name is Chris and I hate Cilantro.

I live in the UK and have hated Coriander for as long as I can remember. Recently I found myself travelling to the US and whilst in a 'Red Lobster' r...



A Story by Ross

I was an exchange student to Mexico in high school and loved the authentic food I had there; all except for one dish that I could not handle for a number of reasons...

Some may know "me...



A Story by Alan M

I never knew I had a cilantro problem until 1995.

That was the year I started finding the stuff in ever-larger pieces on my ethnic food. And even larger pieces on my "modern fusion cuis...



A Story by Rita

OK, so tell me how cilantro fits into ITALIAN cuisine. The cook at this small Italian restaurant obviously did not possess an adequate sense of smell--or sight--when he picked up cilantro at the mark...



A Story by Sarah

I never did understand why I would involuntarily gag after trying salsa at most Mexican restaurants as a kid. It wasn't until I was out for a romantic dinner with my husband (then boyfriend) at a Thai...



A Story by Kathi

Everytime I go out to eat, no matter what the cuisine (naturally avoiding Vietnamese, authentic Chinese - west coast, Mexican, Thai, Indian, Pacific Rim, Morrocan & anything fusion) I have to doub...
