This is Thomas Cook Broen.
He has been a lumberjack for 20 years back in Norway where he came from.
Broen came to Penang 10 years ago and tried what was recommended and ate the Mee Goreng at the stall from the Famous Mee Sultan located at swatow lane junction.
Not only did he got hooked to the mee goreng but he got hooked up to Mohd Sultan’s daughter Habsah as well. He came back in 2009. They got married and three weeks ago blessed with a daughter Nur Lilian Mohd Thomas Cook Broen.
Broen said he managed to get his father in – law to teach him the art of frying the famous Mee Goreng however he still keep the secret of sauce preparation as a secret.
So anytime when you are in Penang don’t forget to make sure you drop by in Batu Ferringhi and try his air tangan huh..
Now, this really excite me and remind me of my two Norwegian friends. When they get back here i want them to try their hands on the laksa utara. See if both of them can out do Broen.
I am counting on you guys. Norway boleh !!.
