I really enjoy dining in Sefali. It feels like it is detached from its surroundings; as if it is in another dimension. I love it even more during the night especially when I am eating with people who are special to me. Many a bond has been formed within this beloved place, and it has saved me from hunger more than I care to remember. The price may be low but the food is definitely has a high quality. Add the ambience factor, and I daresay this is a place worth going to from afar—even when you are too far from Quezon City. These are the top reasons why I’m addicted to this place. Try it even once, and I’m pretty sure you’ll see where I’m coming from. [more]
Somewhere within the bowels of Krus na Ligas (KNL) in Diliman Quezon City lies Sefali. There are only three ways to get there: a tricycle from C.P. Garcia, a cab from anywhere in the University of the Philippines area, or the most used way of traveling for adventurous people (or loyal regulars like us)--walking. I strongly suggest that you take either of the first two methods instead of our favored way, so you can simply say ‘Sefali’ once inside whichever vehicle. You might find it to be a troublesome traveling experience, but I guarantee that it will all be worth it.
Sefali looks like a high class place but it serves really cheap yet delicious food. Aside from that, it has a homey tropical-Mediterranean atmosphere, romantic ambience accentuated by dim lights, mosaic-designed tables and walls, bohemian beads as curtains, and music that jives with everything you sense around you. Whenever I’m in Sefali I feel like I’m having a candle-lit dinner date even when I’m dining all by myself. If you’re excited to visit this place, it is open every Monday to Sunday from 8a.m. to 11p.m. [more]
All About Sefali
Looking for a simple place to eat in, I stumbled upon this grand hole-in-the-wall kind of restaurant in one of my many explorations of Krus na Ligas. I never regretted that day when I found one of the many treasured venues of the ever-mysterious area: the infamous Carinderia Sefali Bomika, more popularly known as Sefali. (Krus na Ligas is a mysterious place for me because it seemingly has everything.)
Here’s what I like and don’t like about the place. Although the surrounding is not quite as classy as in Makati (Philippine’s so-called New York City), the restaurant itself is quite chic. Inside, you’ll feel like you’re in a high-end restaurant. Simply put, I love the décor. On the other hand, what I don’t like is getting to the place by a jeep. It’s really inconvenient to take a jeep, so I suggest you take a cab. [more]
Location: Krus na Ligas I've been wanting to do a review on the popular eateries around the University of the Philippines - Diliman. I was lucky enough to have dropped by Krus na Ligas with my officemates last weekend, eventually having lunch at Carinderia Sefali.
Sefali offers various meals from sizzling plates to rice toppings. Half of us ordered big meals (P95) which in my opinion is more than enough for two people. See comparison between the big meal and the ordinary meal...
