Cilantro is a polarizing food, with around 15% of the population having a strange gene variation that makes cilantro (also known as coriander) taste like soap. So it’s not surprising that Lee Know would strongly react to the unexpected flavor.

Still, Lee Know reassured viewers that he’s not a picky eater, it’s just the smell of cilantro that he can’t handle.

I’m not a picky eater in general, but I really can’t bear the smell of cilantro.

But there are many people who can eat cilantro. Our members too.

Hopefully, he can try Chipotle again, but this time without the cilantro.
