I lived 40 years before I encountered cilantro, then I visited a Thai restaurant. I thought for a long time I was just being finicky. But I do gag on cilantro. And I mean this in a medical sense. When it is in my mouth I feel like I will throw-up. So it is physical not mental. When people say it is like lemon or lime, I honestly don't know what they are taking about. And I love lemon and limes. I must say, however, that at most restaurants the waiters no longer think you are crazy when you say "NO Cilantro!" Thank you all for your support.
