Okay. I hate it because it's in everything my family likes that I hate. I don't need no fancy curries or shrimp, I just sometimes want some chicken noodle soup.
I ate a whole plate of cilantro once, and I nearly died. Never again. #downwithcilantro
I always liked Mexican, East Indian, Middle Eastern, Thai, etc... until cilantro was added. The past 20 years, more of my favorite foods have been ruined by that nasty herb. A good payback would be to add liver & onions to the foods the cilantro lovers like. Cilantro should be an option not a requirement for foods. I've had good salsa and guacamole, for example, without the vile herb added.
One time I was eating a taco (a mexican taco) and out of nowhere a some mexican guy threw some cilantro on it mid chomp. I spit it out on the floor...
Okay I was literally trying to enjoy my baked potato and my mother put cilantro on it so i moved to portland orgeon and became a baptist.
The Problem with Cilantro is that people USE TOO MUCH! It's a wonderful herb; but you only need a hint, to make the dish interesting, like tarragon it MUST be used with discretion. Too much of these two herbs, and you can throw the dish away!
I cant bear the smell of cilantro,it can destory any delicious food.
Cilantro once consumed my life, but now with the lord's help i have vanquished the demon that is cilantro from my supermarket. I tore the head off the lifeless corpse and am very happy to say the day is ours, my friends. Start the revolution!

NO STORY ABOUT THIS! BECAUSE I NEVER ATE THIS BEFORE!I JUST HATE THE SMELL!!1
Do you cilantro-leaf haters also dislike the coriander seeds when they are ground up as a spice? Does the spice also taste soapy?
one day i was having sex with my hot ass boyfriend,Ira, and he accidentally got cilantro stuck in his throat and died. the end.
p.s. i hate cilantro

My mother-in-law HATES cilantro so I make sure I cook with it every time she visits! LMAO!!! :^)
My problem is that when I eat cilantro, my throat seizes up and I cannot breathe for a minute or two, then finally I can breath again. Let me tell you this is scary. Now when I am in a Mexican restaurant I tell them absolutely no cilantro. So far, they have cooperated very well.
thanks so much for the cilantro on my scrambled eggs crappy brooklyn heights diner. if i wanted to taste fingernails down a chalkboard i wouldve takin acid. f-you
cilantro is stupid

cilanrto is hate

I'm one of those people who cannot stand the taste of cilantro. Unfortunately, one of my favorite restaurants is Chipotle. Their rice consists of tine specks of the demon plant, and their corn has giant chunks of it. Throughout the delicious mixture of guacamole, sofritas, beans, and lettuce, I sometimes have to gag down chunks of the green substance.
Keep that shit outta my salsa!
All I have to say is the fresco menu at Taco Bell is FILLED with cilantro. Can't stand it!
I am so glad to be a part of this page! I HATE, HATE cilantro.
Evil, vile weed
I absolutely hate cilantro. My roomate loves it and I hate it and she just made ceviche and I think it's disgusting. She just posted something grosss
Funny - I used to hate it when I was a child, but somewhere in my late teens I started loving it, and still do. I do hate the smell of stinkbugs - and at the same time, I definitely see the resemblance to cilantro. Go figure.
I'm almost 60 and discovered cilantro 10-12 years ago when
I noticed my salsa tasted like I was chewing aluminum.
Cilantro tastes like someone mixed laundry detergent and pine sap and smells like an old kitchen sponge in your food.

Absolutely the worst type of herb to flavour your food with. Even when it's served as decoration the smell alone can ruin your whole food. Simply horrible.
Cillantro Is Horribl
Cilantro is NOT a useless herb.
Cilantro, otherwise known as coriander, is an excellent food for removing heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum and lead from the body. This herb is believed to cross the blood-brain barrier and remove heavy metals from the brain. Taking 400 mg of cilantro a day can pretty much clean heavy metals out of the body in just two weeks, according to Robert C. Atkins MD.
I haven't posted here in a long time, and logged in because I just discovered an awful product--CILANTRO CONDITIONER!!! NOOOOOO!!!
Not sure if this will replace or add to what I posted when I first joined, but in case it does replace it: My first encounter with cilantro was in San Diego in the early 80's. I took the salad back to the buffet counter because I thought there was something rotten in it--turned out it was the cilantro. Oh, the horror...
Note to members: Although I am not a Chipotle fan by any means, the food is edible IF YOU ASK FOR YOUR RICE WITHOUT CILANTRO. They will gladly get some non-cilantro rice for you if you just ask (nicely).
I always hear people say that cilantro tastes like soap but I think that's weird. To ME, it smells like BODY ODOR (the nasty kind, and tastes like THE SMELL OF BODY ODOR. It's gross, I hate it, and I tell everyone I know who likes it how much it smells like BO. So far, I've been able to ruin at least one friend's enjoyment of cilantro. MuaHahAHAhahAhaHa Go, IHC!!!
I hate cilantro and my grandma likes to add it to virtually everything she can add it to such as salsa. Cant even eat salsa at home cause its infectes with the demon plant named Cilantro.
I bid a good day to you sir!
I used to work at a grocery store and people would buy cilantro all the time. The leaves would fall off and get caught in the belt and stick to my hands.
DOWN WITH CILANTRO!!!!!
my best friend's nick name is cilantro and I HATE HER. I HATE CILANTRO THAT IS MY STORY
It seems to me that people who like Cilantro have a stunted perception of it because they say it has a mild taste. To me it is so strong that a little bit of it in a dish completely overwhelms all other flavors. To say it is nauseating is not just an expression of distaste - it literally makes some of us sick. A little bit of it ruins perfectly good salsa. It is so overused that I have to believe that other people simply cannot perceive it the way we do. And they act as if we are the strange ones.
Cilantro is the devil!!! This one time I ate cilantro and I exploded.
St. Paul, MN
I loved eating tomatoes i any shape or form. Got a plateful of gazpacho, and developed a fetid, nauseating taste in my mouth that didn't go away with vomitting or rinsing. Had no idea what it was until the cook told me about cilantro used a garnish. Ugh. Never again. Do believe we should have labeling like for salt, nutrates and nitrites, and calories.
the most disgusting and offensive weed ever used in cooking. may be people who eat it do not have a good sense of smell and taste. this should weeded out of civilized cooking .

is cilantro awesome? I say it sucks. (that means no)
Im not gonna lie, normally I dont mind a bit of coriander but one day just making some pasta with pesto I was almost ill. Turns out my mother bought coriander pesto instead of normal basil pesto. Avoid it like the plague - its horrible.

It's nasty,ruins everything it comes in contact with.
Cilantro killed my father and married my mother. I have never been the same since...
My pet bunny loves cilantro but I've never tried it. Next time I get him some I've gotta try it just to see what all this fuss is about. Maybe I'll be joining your community next week. lol.
My parents put parsley/cilantro in some stuff. In the vegan things I eat usually. I hate it, I really don't like the taste ew. I avoid it as much as possible.

I personally do not have a story about Cilantro (if I've ever tried it, I honestly can't remember), but I thought you should know that this website made it into Uncle John's Funniest Ever Bathroom Reader in 2013. I do not mean this in the context that this website is a joke, but that some people find it funny that it exists. I am going to continue staying away from cilantro, as I haven't had any to begin with, simply because it seems 4,435 other people would encourage me to. Keep on hating the plant!
I was at a diner, and my salmon burger had disgusting amounts of Cilantro on it!
this one time my exfriend jacob william musal force fed me cilanto and i died.
I hate cilantro... Sometimes I quiver at the sight of it! One time... I was too scared to eat at a Mexican restaurant because they served it in their RICE!!!!!!
I know people love the stuff but to me it tastes like some fertilizer soaked weed.
It tastes so bad it is worrysome, like a poison.
Los Angeles, CA
I cannot believe there is a site dedicated to the hatred of cilantro! I just Googled "cilantro smells like body odor and this site came up. Ha ha. It stinks. I hate it. I think taco bell uses it too. I always thought their tomatoes taste like soap. Nasty nasty stuff.
Cilantro killed my father during the great cleansing if Roderigo-snachez along with 6.9 other people. My name is inigomontoya and cilantro killed my father prepare to die
I can't remember my first run in witch Cilantro, but I can assure you I was grossed out. So I avoided it, take it out of my food. I'n fact, I was just going to eat my favorite Tai Noodles my mom ordered and there it was, EVIL CILANTRO so what i ususally do is take it out, but with I heated the noodles the next day, it smelled so bad because of the cilantro.
I was at an Applebee's, I had ordered a shrimp dish. Something kept tasting atrocious and I didn't have a clue why. I kept sending the dish back with no luck. I didn't know until chipotle boomed what cilantro was and that the taste made me physically ill. God bless chipotle for having cilantro free rice at all times.
