First of all, I am so relieved to have found this website and to know that I am not alone the fight against cilantro. It all started when I was 18 and I planned to make an amazing dinner for my family. I saw a great pasta recipe that looked to die for, and got everything the recipe asked for. Ready to serve, I decided to try my dish only to be completely mortified at the result. A horrible soapy overdose of flavour. I couldn't figure it out, UNTIL just the other day, at the age of 22 I was dying for my ultimate favourite meal, a large hot spicy hearty bowl of PHO. My ususal vietnemese restaurant was not open, so to kick the craving I decided to go to another joint near by, the pho was served and I've never been so excited. Everything looked just as if I was at my original location. As I took in my first mouthful I was BAFFLED, HORRIFIED, ABSOULTELY DISGUSTED to realize that the disgusting soapy taste that ruined my families dinner years before and stung my tastebuds for years to come, was in fact CILANTRO. Now that I am finally aware, and from this day on, I will forever live.. Cilantro Free.
