I am always careful to ask that cilntro be excluded from anything I order, especially with Vietnamese Pho, a favorite of my wife and I. We both agree that it tastes like someone has placed a few drops of soap in the food. It always ruins the meal, as I am simply unable to get past it, even after careful removal.
So imagine my suprise at a Japanese restaurant in Austin today when I found cilantro in my miso soup. In all the 20+ years I have had the soup I never tasted cilantro in miso soupbefore and, of course, it was ruined.
I am now at a t-shirt shop and they are almost finished with my new shirt that says "I Hate Cilantro, do not even THINK about puttin it in my food"
