Despite my distaste for cilantro, most mexican foods don't taste good without it. Just so long as it's there but not center stage.

When cilantro is actually incorporated into something like salsa I have no problem with it. My issue is the tendency for some people to just dump half a metric ton of raw cilantro on a taco or something of the like. As a garnish I can't stand it.

I don't feel too strongly either way about Fuggles.

I don't feel one way or another about Fuggles. Used it in plenty of beers because it was cheap. It's not my favorite hop flavor but it doesn't make me gag.

I like cilantro but it shouldn't be overpowering in a dish. I can see why some people think it has a soapy flavor but it isn't offputting to me. I'm fine with coriander.

It's good to know someone like you, Yoops, who I've grown to trust on these forums, thinks fuggles make beer taste like dirt. I can't stand them! But is that what they're supposed to taste/smell like? All the beer I've made with Fuggles ends up being close to undrinkable.
