I was eating out with family at a local place that I had been to a lot. I always ordered the stewed beef, white/brown rice, black beans and plantain chips. I would dump the black beans on the rice and let it sit for a minute before mixing it in. I was talking with family so I did this without looking and when I went to take a bite of something that I had loved, there it was. The place had started putting cilantro in the beans for some odd reason. It was completely mixed into my rice and they had ground it into very small pieces so I couldn't even eat around it! My rice was ruined and I was able to get fresh but I couldn't get new beans as it was already mixed into the whole batch. The food was alright in the end but I was stuck with that awful chemical taste for a while.
