Cirebon, (24/2) – Apart from being a means of rest, rest areas are also often a regional culinary destination. One of them is the Empal Gentong Mang Darma restaurant which was recently inaugurated at the Rest Area Travoy KM 207A Palikanci, Thursday (24/2).
The inauguration of RM Empal Gentong Mang Darma was attended by the Mayor of Cirebon Nasrudi Azis, Director of Building and Facilities Management of PT JMRB Tita Paulina Purbasari, Head of Region II West Java PT JMRB Dedy Hisar S., and Irwan Kuswandi as owner of RM Empal Gentong Mang Darma at Rest Area Travoy 207 A Palikanci.
Cirebon Mayor Nasrudin Azis said, with restaurants such as Empal Gentong Mang Darma in the rest area, they could introduce regional specialties to the wider community.
“In addition, this restaurant is also expected to help the economy of the people of Cirebon, or the people around the rest area,” he hoped.
Meanwhile, Tita expressed her gratitude to the owner of RM Empal Gentong Mang Darma who has believed in making PT JMRB a partner.
“Cirebon is an area that is often the point of fatigue for motorists traveling to Central Java or East Java. So we hope that Rest Area Travoy 207A, apart from being a resting place, can also be a destination for road users to buy souvenirs and taste Cirebon specialties, one of which is presented by RM Empal Gentong Mang Darma, “explained Tita.
In addition to RM Empal Gentong Mang Darma, at Rest Area Travoy 207A Palikanci, there are also various culinary delights and local specialties. One of them is a Sundanese food restaurant as well as batik and typical Cirebon souvenirs.
