I would really like to know WHY it is so hard for waiters/waitresses/cooks to understand the request, "Can I have that without any cilantro garnish please?" Of course it's understandable that they often point out that there is cilantro in the pico/salsa/whatever else (there always is...) but when I say that I realize this but just would not like the EXTRA garnish (poison) on top they are completely stumped by this concept. Every restaurant. Every time. There was a time where every single week I went to Chili's for their awesome quesadilla salad and COULD NOT get them to avoid the cilantro garnish without removing half the salad too, despite my begging them to leave everything else alone. CIlantro is a curse.
