I managed a fastfood Mexican restaurant about 14 years ago. In the mornings, I chopped the cilantro for the pico de gallo sauce. I can still smell it in my nightmares. That horrid smell would perme...

At a fancy-pants pizza/pasta place in Atlanta they have a bbq chicken pizza, with cilantro. I always make them swap it out for basil!...

I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Back in 1989, Cilantro was an almost exotic thing to know about here, but I happened to live for half a year in Bogotá, Colombia, and stumble upon this kitchen plagu...

The first time I discovered the nasty herb, I was working at a restaurant here in Northern California (as a dishwasher. My first teenage job.)

We received free meals, but the restaurant was a...

I am lucky enough to have lived in the hindu kingdom of Nepal. This place has a lot going for it, but one big problem (besides the political intrigue of current events) is that these people infuse ev...



A Story by Jami Bernard

Ah, I remember it well -- the very first time I experienced cilantro. It was in the early '80s, and the foul thing appeared in a container of take-out Vietnamese food. Perhaps this was cilantro's firs...



A Story by Dave

My story starts with a family torn apart by cilantro, but ends with forgiveness. I call it, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”

About a year ago, my brother married an amazing woman....



A Story by Billie Nell

I hate cilantro, I mean I really, really hate cilantro. I love green, and I love everything that is paired with cilantro, I even love the shape of it and the way it grows. But it cannot be trusted. ...



A Story by Roy

I first ran across cilantro when trying a spring roll at a Vietnamese place in 1990. Up until then, I had lived a wonderful cilantro-free existence.

By 1995, it seemed I could no longer orde...



A Story by Kris Hirst

I spent the better part of 1986 in Mexico, and the worst thing I had to eat down there was a lizard taco. I thought it was the lizard, until I returned to the states, and my roomies held a bit dinner ...

One time I was eating a burrito and realized I had bitten off a piece of the tinfoil in which it was wrapped. I quickly expelled the metallic shred from my mouth only to find out it was a piece of ci...



A Story by Mike

Unlike most of the stories I've read, I started out neutral on cilantro. I have no real opinion on the taste, but there are some definite unpleasant associations there. Whenever I get that taste in ...

One lovely Florida day I was out having some quality mother-daughter time with you guessed it--my mom! (Funny how that works.) Feeling the hunger coming on we popped into a resturaunt with a chic tak...



A Story by Steve

I don't have a very refined sense of taste, so I can't really say I'm that offended by the taste of cilantro. But - it always gets stuck in my craw. I really hate that. I feel like I'm hacking up a ha...



A Story by Shaun

Hello there,

My Cilantro story is interesting, as my first run in with Cilantro was not to ingest it, but to inhale it. Before I go on, this is NOT a story about smoking cilantro :)


A Story by Paul

I hate the taste of cilantro when the plant is flowering only. I attribute this to the Coriander flavour but can't verify as i don't go near the stuff anymore on account of the terrible flavour over-...



A Story by Pandora

Though I hate cilantro I can acknowledge, but not condone, its existance in culinary dishes of such countries such as Thailand, Mexico, Spain and India to name a few.

However, under no circum...



A Story by FactWino

I hate cilantro. There, I've said it. I live in New Mexico, where the New Mexican food doesn't have cilantro, or at least it didn't used to. The cilantro wave hit and what used to be perfectly good...



A Story by Michael Abbott

I had always had the impression that I must be the only person in the world who doesn't like coriander leaf (is this what you mean by "cilantro" -- I've never heard it called that?), so it's...
