It happened to me last year when my Mom made a "healthy salad". All Iknew is that I bit into this leafy green thing that tasted like shit! I found later that it was cilantro. The real flavor was like chewing on an old rubber shoe with a hint of some type of soapy citris. (Or what I imagine it would taste like as I have never eaten an old rubber shoe).
I had another experience with it in the cafeteria at my workplace. The chef made this wonderful chicken dish with veggies and tomatoes but runied it with lots of cilantro. I had to eat around it which was no small feat. as he really piled it in there. What a horribly disgusting flavor! It just assaults your tastebuds.
