Big news of the day: Gary eats Indian food (and likes it!)...

Tonight, at approximately 6:45pm (JST), Gary Thornton of Ankeny, Iowa, tried Indian food for the first time. Thornton, 49, had always proclaimed himself a 'meat and potatoes' kind of guy, preferring any table with salt and pepper and a diet Pepsi.

Tonight, in an unexpected turn, though, Thornton was asked to try Indian food, and, after trying it, with little hesitation, found it to be more delicious than he had ever imagined. After tasting the third course, Indian-styled ice cream called Kulfee, Thornton gladly exclaimed 'there's nothing tonight that hasn't been right on. This stuff is good.' and was overheard discussing finding Indian restaurants with his wife Lynne, 44.

Some of the foods eaten by Mr. Thornton at the time of this publishing:

Vegetable Pakura
Tandori Chicken
Chicken Masala Curry
Garlic Naan

I'm sure we can find some great places for Gary to try now that he is a bit more adventurous!
