I managed a fastfood Mexican restaurant about 14 years ago. In the mornings, I chopped the cilantro for the pico de gallo sauce. I can still smell it in my nightmares. That horrid smell would permeate everything. I gag just thinking of it. I can't comfortably eat anything that that has cilantro in it and I chose Mexican restaurants by whether or not they have unavoidable cilantro in the salsa. I hate cilantro.
