I haaaaaaaaatttttttttteeeeeeeeee cilantro!!! The first time I ever had cilantro was also the last. I was eating some asian dish from a local japanese restaurant, and since I had never had cilantro before, I was SO not prepared for what was before me. I bit into my food and OMG!!! What the ----!!!! My mouth was being assaulted by the most disgusting taste I had ever had in my mouth! I gagged and blew it right across the room. Everyone was grossed out (understandably so), but I just had to get that god-awful taste out of my mouth! My eyes watered, and I could even feel it in my sinuses! It tasted like a mixture of perfume, mothballs and rusty nails. I drank about a gallon of water and ate a tube of toothpaste just trying to get rid of the taste. I thought maybe there was something wrong with the food so I complained to the manager. When I described the taste to him, he just laughed and said it was the cilantro.
People really eat that crap? On purpose?
It should be fed to criminals to get confessions.
Thanks for letting me share my feelings about cilantro, the 'devil-weed'.
