In The Phantom Ninja Ilana attempts to improve the Sherman High School cafeteria menu after seeing the students suffer from eating bland, unhealthy food. While she is laughed off by the other students she and Newton work on creating a new menu and with the help of Lance encourage others to join the food tasting party.
Gary Coato is a Galaluna dish and some of the ingredients required do not exists on Earth. Newton uses his access to many databases and several algorithms to determine Earth equivalent produce. While not identical to the Gary Coato created on Galaluna, Ilana agrees it is very close to the same thing and will work well on the menu.
It is unknown if the Earth version of Gary Coato was a success like Fu Fu as it was not seen at the Food Tasting Party, however, Ilana enjoyed.
