The Secret Ingredient to our Wild Mushroom Soup

Like your Grandma’s signature cookies, or your Father’s legendary roast beef, sometimes the secret ingredient to the dish is the person who creates it. Luckily for us, that type of special ingredient is part of our team here at Cilantro and certainly the case with our famous Wild Mushroom Soup.

The man behind the magic is our very own Mr. Kim. He’s been working at Cilantro for over 20 years, and has put his special touch on one of our most beloved dishes. In fact, his soup is so legendary, that it can’t be replicated by anyone other than him – we’ve tried! Shortly after arriving to Calgary from Cambodia, bringing flavor and inspiration along with him, he began working as a chef in our kitchen and as they say, the rest is history! Every Friday he treats the Cilantro staff to his very own fried rice and noodle dish, something he goes out of his way to prep, make and pay for! His hard work ethic and dedication to ensuring every sauce he preps and every soup he stirs is the crème de la crème, he demonstrates daily the kind-hearted man that he is – not to mention he has never called in sick to take a day off!

Cilantro is not just about the food it serves. It’s about the people that work here, the experience we offer and the warm, comforting environment that is perfect for enjoying with friends and family. Like Mr. Kim, our staff are the secret ingredient behind everything we do – and we can’t wait to share more of our passion with our guests!

Thank you Mr. Kim!
