Years ago in California I went out to eat Mexican with friends. A large bowl of Turtle soup was ordered and placed in the middle of the table. It had small green leaves floating in it. I took a bowl and a strange taste made my eyes water and nose start to run. I took another small sip and realized that this soup was doing it! It was terrible, a horrible smell and taste. Now I avoid it any time possible. No one else at the table had that reaction so I just supposed I was allergic to it. I didn't run into it again for years and now it is everywhere and I specifically order "NO CILANTRO!"
