A Story by Amanda

I've got too many stories about this repulsive substance to relate, and I just absolutely cannot believe how some people love it, and actually pay money for it and use it purposely in cooking. It's s...



A Story by Phil

So I was about 18, eating a burrito, and chomped my way into a long sprig of green. Being of the voracious kind, I prompty pulled the foliage into my mouth. Then the foul weed made its true intentions...



A Story by Shannon

A few years ago I began experimenting with my cooking. Until that time I had only made the occasional hamburger helper for my mother. I decided to try something simple, like a chicken tortilla soup. E...



A Story by John

I suppose I should consider myself one of the lucky ones. I managed to avoid all contact with cilantro for the first eighteen years of my life. This is largely due to two accidents (or blessings, if...



A Story by Dave

I am a life-long cilantro hater, and, unfortunately, come from a Panamanian family. For those who don't know, Carribean and Latin American food, and specifically Panamanian food, always contains cila...



A Story by Rafaelo

I was about 5 or 6 when I first realized that cilantro sucks really big!! My Mom would use it when cooking Mexican food. I remember shopping with her at the grocery store and I picked up a bunch, and ...



A Story by Stella

My cilantro story began a couple of years ago during my first year of college. I had this little guinea pig who I would buy fresh produce for every once in a while to keep him happy. I usually got par...



A Story by Jay

I remember being relieved to see a "Cilantro - please taste before adding" sign at nearby Mongolian barbeque. That gave me comfort knowing that I wasn't alone. In order to actually make th...

First time I tasted coriander/cilantro was in an indian restaurant. I had just received my meal, took a first bite, then this foul taste started spreading itself throughout my whole head....well thats...



A Story by Mike

I think the first time I had cilantro was in some salad. I had had salad before, of course, but I was pretty sure salad wasn't supposed to taste like that. But what could I say? It looked like lettuc...



A Story by Ahtami

Well on top of Cilantro being a foul tasting substance, it appears that I am allergic to it as well. I was at the Mall of America and I bought a taco from what looked to be a reputable establishment....



A Story by Alice Radley

All in all, cilantro and I had not tussled much ... until about 13 years ago. I had grown up with salsa, never noticing the green menace. Then when I was about 15, I went to eat my first Thai meal. ...



A Story by Kevin S

It's one thing to encounter the soapy, astringent, tongue-and-toe curling taste of cilantro in foods that are unfortunately designed to showcase the brutal flavor of this weed, but it's quite another ...



A Story by Satya

I never lived in a place with good Mexican food until I moved to San Francisco, so I was looking forward to a great burrito on a regular basis. But from the very first burrito,there was this weird tas...



A Story by Kristin

The first time I tried cilantro was over 15 years ago in Mexico. This was before the cilantro trend hit America. Mexicans serve what is basically salsa, which they describe as 'salad.' Personally, I ...



A Story by Hophead

Many years ago, I worked at the Rock Bottom Brewery in Denver. There you may order a plates of nachos that is about the size of a pregnant cadillac. Just a HUGE quantity of nachos. Looks good, smells ...



A Story by Leeanne

UGH, Cilantro.

I never knew how much I hated cilantro when I was a kid. This is probably because I've always been a picky eater, so I didn't usually branch out and try new foods. But when I...



A Story by Steve

I can't remember when I first noticed that I hate cilantro. I can't believe how many restaurants just pour it all over their foods. I can smell it on food placed in front of me. When I ask, "D...



A Story by Ian Burrell

20 years ago I first tasted Coriander (Cilantro) used by my wife to season fish. I was absolutely shocked, it did not taste anything like what food should taste like, it was a strong combination of b...



A Story by Mike Pontillo

I'm delighted that someone started this site so I didn't have to. I have been on the anti-cilantro bandwagon for many years now.

I have a detailed essay regarding my cilantro views on my w...
