Need a dessert fix after dining around Little India? Here’s a hidden gem located just a stone’s throw from Pek Kio Market & Food Centre to check out the next time those cravings hit — a hole-in-the-wall ice cream parlour, Days of Elijah Gelato.
Having started out as a humble online shop specialising in artisan handcrafted gelato in 2021, Days of Elijah has finally branched out with its very own physical 12-seater space. It’s cute and cosy with an overarching heritage theme in the form of Peranakan-style floor tiles and a feature wall adorned with nostalgic drawings depicting life in old-school Singapore.
The gelato here is handcrafted with fresh ingredients in flavours inspired by the local sweet treats from the 70s and 80s.
Prices start from S$4 for a Single and S$7.50 for a Double scoop, with an additional S$1 for premium flavours. Enjoy your gelato and sorbet in a Cone (+S$1) or atop a crispy Waffle (from S$9.50).
You can expect a rotating menu of locally-inspired “childhood” flavours alongside classics like Spectaculoos, Green Mint Chocolate (a flavour I can never resist), and an excellent Chocolate Sorbet.
The retro-tastic highlights are, of course, the zesty and creamy Lemon Puff inspired by the iconic Khong Guan lemon sandwich biscuits (I still enjoy them to this day), as well as the Pulut Hitam, which puts a spin on the black glutinous rice dessert we all know and love.
The Haw Ah (Shan Zha), a sweet and sour hawthorn-flavoured gelato studded with the actual haw flakes, is a must-try — we hear it really resembles the popular childhood snack.
Drop by Days of Elijah and give them some well-deserved support if you’re ever in the area!
