Breaking Bad and New Mexico

Take a stroll through the state of New Mexico in the footsteps of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) of Breaking Bad. Top 10.

House of Walter White

Walter White lives in this little house in a residential neighborhood in Albuquerque. The famous pizza scene from episode 2 of season 3 was so popular with fans that many had fun reproducing it, prompting the owners to build a fence. To learn more, read our article on this anecdote.

Los Pollos Hermanos

The famous fast food restaurant of Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) is obviously one of the 10 must-see places in Breaking Bad. Regularly, pop-up restaurants of the brand open in the United States. After Austin, Texas, another establishment will open on October 24, 2019 at Venice Beach in Los Angeles to promote the film El Camino, a derivative of the series.

Car Wash

Working part-time at this car wash while he was a chemistry teacher, Walter White eventually bought the premises to launder money from his drug sales. As if to echo the series, the establishment regularly changes its name.

Office of Saul Goodman

The crooked lawyer (Bob Odenkirk) with multiple advertisements in the city of Albuquerque has his office within these walls. The character’s success was such that he had his own spin-off, Better Call Saul, named after his poster campaign.

House of Jesse Pinkman

Walter White’s business partner, Jesse Pinkman, a former student turned petty criminal, lived in this house for a time. The Breaking Bad series resurrected another cult fiction “episode”, Malcolm. Shot on the occasion of the release of the complete film Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston resumes his role as Hal and wakes up with Lois (Jane Kaczmarek) after having a nightmare: he had become a drug dealer. This little scene follows a crazy theory of fans thinking that Breaking Bad was a sequel to Malcolm. Thanks to these few seconds of special episode, the theory proves to be correct, at least in an alternative ending.

Tuco Headquarters

If it explodes in episode 6 of season 1, the headquarters of Mexican gangster and drug trafficker Tuco Salamanca (Raymond Cruz) still exists. The scope of the series is international. in Istanbul, a café called Walter’s opened in 2015. In addition to being inspired by the series, yellow suits are available to customers but also to staff for a total immersion in the world of Breaking Bad.

House of Hank and Marie

If there’s no risk, it’s no fun. The sister (Betsy Brandt) of Skyler White (Anna Gunn), Walter’s wife, is married to Hank Schrader (Dean Norris), an agent of the DEA, the federal agency fighting drug traffickers. Seinfeld fans may have noticed that three of Breaking Bad’s main actors made an appearance in the 1990s series. Bryan Cranston played the role of Jerry’s dentist, Anna Gunn the hero’s girlfriend and Bob Odenkirk, a fake doctor dating Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus).

Laundry – Laboratory

It is in the basement of this laundry room that Gus’s state-of-the-art laboratory, unveiled to Walter in episode 5 of season 3, is hidden. Born in Copenhagen to an African-American mother and an Italian father, Giancarlo Esposito arrived in New York at the age of six. In addition to his roles in Malcolm X and Mo’ Better Blues, the actor also appeared in Mylène Farmer California’s music video. He is also the narrator of the video game Destiny.

J. P. Wynne High School

Chemistry teacher, Walter White teaches at this school. In reality, the establishment is the one in Rio Rancho inaugurated in 1997. In 2009, President Barack Obama held a town hall meeting in the school about credit card reform, more than a year after the first broadcast of the series. Barack Obama a ghostwriter?

Break Old Joe’s

In the first episodes of the series, Walter White, Jesse Pinkman and Tuco Salamanca find themselves in this car wreck. Be careful if you want to go on site, the staff is far from welcoming, especially if you only come to take pictures.

Bonus: The Candy Lady

424 San Felipe Street NW, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

Taking “blue meth” safely? Go to The Candy Lady for candy resembling the drugs in the show. No danger of addiction, except maybe to sugar? If these treats look so much like the drug used in the show, it’s not by copy. Debbie Ball, the store owner, supplied the production team with the crystal lining sweets.
