There are attractions in Los Angeles that are on every tourist list. These include, for example, the Hollywood Sign, the Walk of Fame or Venice Beach. We have already seen many of them and it keeps us going. But there are other places in Los Angeles that you discover by accident and then enjoy it animal-like. Exactly such a place we found this time, as we drove through the city.

It was in Echo Park, we wanted to go from there to Dodger Stadium and then downtown. We saw a small crowd in front of an inconspicuous, small house, which proudly took pictures there. We looked closer and could hardly believe it, we were standing in front of the Toretto House from Fast and Furious, in which Dominic Toretto lived, played by Vin Diesel.

Where Vin Diesel shared a corona with Paul Walker in the movie, or had a barbecue for his buddies. There are so many scenes that play both inside and outside the house, romantic and tragic.

Who among the fans of this film series does not know the scene when the Toretto House from Fast and Furious exploded in the seventh part!

In the movie it has the number 1327, in real life the house number is 724 East Kensington Road. The house is inhabited but you are allowed to take pictures there as long as you do not disturb your privacy.

The hilly terrain of the Echo Park Hills is also perfect for many spectacular chases.

The market of the Torettos!

Since we had found the house of Dom by accident, we naturally also went on the search for Toretto's market. Hundert Meter vom Haus entfernt stehen und jetzt Bob's Market heißen. We were told he would be only a few hundred yards from the house and now called Bob's Market.

This market was the backdrop for a scene that was filmed for Fast and Furious Part 1. The one in Brian, ordered his tuna sandwich, breaks out a fight and Dominic Toretto intervenes.

When you enter Bob's Market, nothing is reminiscent of the inside of Toretto's market from the movie. There is no open back room and you will not get a tuna sandwich.

Klaus went to the store to buy drinks, because it was very hot and we were thirsty. When he entered the shop, he looked around and asked the lady behind the counter "where is Vin Diesel?" She was having fun and answered, "he is not here today!"

The 1913 built market is not big, but you get everything you need.

On the shelves you will find drinks, food and household goods as well as souvenirs. Of course there are also toys, sweets, ice cream for children and tots. If you want to challenge your luck, you can also play the lottery there.

Bob's Market is not just in Fast and Furious. Over the years he has been featured in a number of films such as 1997 in LA Confidential in the background. Danny Parker (V Kilmer) won cigarettes at Bob's Market in 2002's The Salton Sea.

As a fan, discovering the Toretto House from Fast and Furious was a great experience and to be in Bob's Market, where Brian ordered his tuna sandwich.

There are many memories of film scenes with the unfortunately so tragic, early died Paul Walker.

The exterior of the market has remained the same, but the interior has changed. It was very special for us fans of this film series to be able to take pictures there.

  • Oh, how cool! That would be a sight that I had not even on the screen. For fans of the movies, of course, mega cool! The house looks so unimpressive 😀 The more exciting that it seems to be such a hotspot. 🙂

    Lovely wishes
    Sarah

    • If not tourists had photographed there, we would have passed by. It looks so small and inconspicuous.
      best regards

  • Me the house and the movie says nothing 😉
    But I know the house where 'Welcome to the Hartmanns' was filmed, that's just around the corner from us. Of course, can not keep up with your house, but it also flies in the air!

    • I do not know this movie, it's great to have something next door.

  • That's cool. I think it's great that one can also discover sights by chance. That's what I think so synonymous only in Hollywood.

    All the best,
    Julia

  • For all fans it is definitely exciting to discover such a place. Seeing everything in real, what you have only seen in the film, is always interesting.

  • Hey you.
    But that's an interesting article, I like it a lot. Especially if you are a fan of this movie and then look at this place, that must be great. You will surely discover a lot of the movie again and who knows, maybe you will play the scene as well. Lach.

    Dearest greetings,
    Sandra.

  • Oh, this house would also be on the to-do list with me. 🙂 Find it totally exciting to discover such "props" live!

    Best regards,
    Verena
