Pyongyang, October 29 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, together with Ri Sol Ju gave field guidance to the newly built restaurant for service personnel.

Watching the restaurant, Kim Jong Un recollected with deep emotion the immortal exploits performed by President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il.

He recalled that the restaurant for service personnel which opened in February 1948 on the personal initiative of the President gave service without interruption not only in the period of building a new country but also during the Fatherland Liberation War and it successfully ensured a banquet celebrating the war victory day which was honored with the presence of the President.

Thanks to Kim Jong Il who personally took a measure for providing foodstuff to the restaurant even in the period of the Arduous March when the country was undergoing great difficulties, the restaurant has always been opened, he said, adding that the service personnel of the KPA will always remember the warm loving care shown by Kim Jong Il.

Noting that the restaurant has satisfactorily played its mission and duty as a catering center for service personnel for the past several decades, he instructed the officials and employees of the restaurant to serve them well so as to convey the profound loving care of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il to posterity.

He went round different places of the restaurant including dining rooms and kitchen to learn in detail about its construction and service plan.

He said all dining rooms look spacious and nice to be fit for catering facilities, interior decoration is peculiar and the color of finishing building materials look attractive, adding that they are so impeccable that they can be used as a state banquet hall.

He was pleased that the restaurant has quality tables, chairs and other furniture, the kitchen was arranged well to be fit for its capacity and it has sufficient utensils including noodle-trays in place. He was satisfied with its modern sterilizing and washing equipment to fully ensure hygienic safety, in particular.

He set forth the tasks to be fulfilled by the restaurant for managing and operating it and improving its service.

Underlining the need for the restaurant to develop itself into the one frequented by service personnel, he stressed that to this end it is most important for its officials and employees to provide kind service and display cultural traits and, at the same time, strive hard to improve the quality of noodle in the spirit of devoted service to service personnel.

He instructed the restaurant to compete with famous restaurants including Okryu Restaurant to raise the quality of noodle and scrupulously organize the work for steadily improving the skill of cookers, in particular.

Stressing the need to take thorough measures for the supply of foodstuff to put the service at the restaurant on a normal footing, he told its officials to let him know about problems in time and promised to solve all of them.

Noting that soldier-builders successfully constructed the restaurant to be impeccable in any aspect as intended by the party, he praised them for building the restaurant as a proud edifice in the Songun era.

Personally tasting the noodle prepared by employees of the restaurant together with senior officials of the party, state and army accompanying him, he expressed expectation and belief that the restaurant would preserve the peculiar taste and tradition of Korean noodle and improve the quality of variety of food and thus creditably perform its duty as a catering center popular among service personnel.

He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, Pak Pong Ju, Kim Ki Nam, Kim Yang Gon, Han Kwang Sang, Ri Jae Il, Pak Myong Chol and Ma Won Chun.
