    Hi everyone, we just got word that we are moving to the Bay Area in a couple months! I am soooooo excited! I have heard some good things about the area already. I hear it's beautiful there.

    Just wanted to say hi, and hoping to get in touch with some of you here, and make some new friends.

    Welcome to Bay area. It is a beautiful place. Lots of Indian people, stores and restaurants. It is like Mini India. You will enjoy staying here. When are you coming? :coffee

    Hi coffeelover, thanks for the welcome! :) We will be moving sometime in May. I am excited about the Indian grocery stores and restaurants. Where we live right now the closest Indian grocery store is almost an hour away.

    Where exactly is Mini India?

    You'll find lots of Indian stores in East Bay (fremont/newark) or South Bay (from sunnyvale to san jose). There is no street as such where there are only Indian stores, these are a bit scattered!

    When I moved here long, long time back, there was only one Indian store and one Indian restaurant. Now they are so many.

    I call Sunnyvale and Fremont area as Mini India. :idea

    Thanks Saratha, we will be living in Monterey. Right now we are scheduled to move in mid-may but not sure yet.

    Will keep in touch. Also, I have been meaning to ask this in a separate thread but thought of asking you. Do you know if I can buy Mixer/grinder in that area? Like the ones we use for grinding idli/dosa dough?

    Thanks
    Raj
