Do you know what really gets on my tits? When I'm in a Thai restaurant and I order a lovely dish and they send it out with one big sprig of coriander sitting on top.
I love coriander and always end up having to pick it up with my fingers, delicately pick off bits of leaf, and spread it across my whole dish.
Would it be so hard for them to chop it up a little in the kitchen? It's there for flavour, not decoration.
Okay so some people don't like coriander, in which case they should ask for no coriander. Or if concerned the restaurant could put it on the side.
I would just like to eat a lovely Thai noodle dish without having to first look like a complete idiot by picking my coriander into little pieces.
I was googling for the image to accompany this and discovered that coriander is also known as cilantro. I was cooking a Vietnamese noodle soup the other day and could not for the life of me find cilantro in the supermarket and realised I didn't actually know what it was. Luckily being a coriander lover I was putting it onto the dish anyway.
