I first encountered cilantro when I was 16. I was at a fancy high class resteraunt and there was little green leaves next to the sandwich I order. I thought it was mint leaves. I like to chew on mint leaves generally so naturally I ate the leaf... it was cilantro. I don't hate cilantro but it did not taste like a mint leaf. Cilantro is like any other leaf. It's misunderstood. No one knows how to properly use it if it is even supposed to be used at all.
