My FIRST cilantro story...not necessarily my WORST
About 20 years ago my sister and her two boys were visiting me from Connecticut, and I took them to a very nice Mexican restaurant in Dallas, one that I had frequented and loved. That night in one of my dishes ,
( that I had ordered on many other occasions)I tasted an overwhelming taste so vile that I couldn't get it out of my mouth fast enough. I looked at my dish and saw little green leaves throughout it. Leaves that had NOT been there on other occasions. It was about that time that the Mexican restaurant community began to throw massive amounts of cilantro into EVERY dish. Although there may have been small amounts cooked in , they were not in the huge doses they began to foist on us. I am so tired of it.
