From the Burpple community

Burpple 1-for-1 deal is at Days of Elijah! Paid only $5 for 2 premium gelatos! Great flavours!

interesting choices found in this gelato shop.

we went with the safer choices of cookies and cream and speculoos and a slightly more adventurous kong guan lemon biscuit flavour. all the flavours were great and went really well with the waffles

waffles was crispy and fluffy but didn’t really have a buttery taste.

the walls were also adorned with portraits from the past, allowing one to reminisce the good ol days

It was a large waffle and crispy too! It’s truly money’s worth as we were so full up after the waffle with 2 special scoops of gelatos. Now they serve coffee too and my favourite affogato! Wooo!

I promised a better pic than my earlier one and here it is with owner and ice cream maker himself, Elijah, at the background. Really good quality gelatos. Pulut hitam has a rice bite to it so you know it’s genuine.

Checked out the new Days of Elijah Gelato that had opened its doors fairly recently at Blk 44 Owen Road just right across from Pek Kio Market & Food Centre; having officially opened its doors since July 2022 (they were previously operating as an online business), we found it exceptionally meaningful to have visited them on National Day — the cafe is full of nostalgia adorning its walls with illustrations that depicts iconic scenes of Singapore while the music on the playlist consisted of past National Day theme songs to further bring everyone’s mood to the occasion. Being a gelato-centric establishment, Days of Elijah Gelato is also one of those ice-cream / gelato parlours being situated in the neighbourhood which we found to be really beautifully designed in its interior; the flooring reminded us of Peranakan-style tiles, while the dine-in area and the ordering counter is segregated with an arch that distinguishes between both areas. Serving gelato as their primary offering, Days of Elijah Gelato serves their gelato in both cup and cone options, whilst also offering patrons with a choice of having their gelato with a waffle. Choices of beverages are fairly limited here; one can either opt for canned drinks or bottled water here; otherwise, one may also opt for a Coke Float or a Root Beer Float as well.

After skimming through the various flavours which they have to offer in their display chiller, we found ourselves going for the Pulut Hitam Gelato and the Haw Ah (i.e. Hawthron) Gelato to go together with our Waffle. We liked how the Waffle here automatically comes paired together with a saucer filled with maple syrup on the side. Going straight for the two scoops of gelato first, we were pretty impressed with both flavours which we have opted for. The Pulut Hitam Gelato tasted like the black glutinous rice dessert which we are all familiar with; not only does it comes with a good bite with bits of black glutinous rice to chew on, we really loved how this flavour wasn’t overly sweet as well. There is that nice hint of fragrance from the black glutinous that is swirled with rich coconut milk; also liked how the gelato was stored at an adequate temperature that didn’t freeze up the black glutinous rice bits for a good texture.

The Haw Ah Gelato was also pretty much what defines a well-churned hawthorn-flavoured gelato — we really liked how they came with a generous loaf of hawthorn chunks that really ante up the light gelato base for a slight zing and a bit of chew; a flavour which we would really recommend for those who are not into gelato flavours that may be a bit on the sweeter side. Both scoops of gelato were sufficiently creamy, yet didn’t feel overly milky — we also liked how the consistency of the gelato was; no undesirable bits or chunks of ice for good texture.

We were honestly not expecting too much from the Waffle here but even the Waffle had left a memorable impression here. The brown waffle is light, airy and fluffy with a consistent texture throughout. It does waft of a slight hint of butter, but we liked how their waffles did not feel particularly heavy or dense like some would even when had together with the gelato; drenching it with the maple syrup provided does further elevates the experience by providing the Waffle with just that level of sweetness it needs to keep going at it.

We have visited quite a number of neighbourhood gelato parlours at this point — with the number of such establishments that are opening all around, they do get a little difficult to distinguish from one another after a while. No doubt some of the gelato flavours at Days of Elijah Gelato do seem more generic, but their locally-inspired flavours are especially well-churned and does seem to carry a quality that separates them from the crowd. We also liked how the owners here are welcoming, friendly and does seem to strike a conversation with their patrons well; forging a sense of community spirit within a neighbourhood setting as business. If anything, the nostalgic theme was probably further brought out by the fact that we had visited them on National Day, with them also keeping things in tune to the occasion when environmental elements are involved. A spot more than just simply gelato, Days of Elijah Gelato does seem like a hidden gem within this quaint and sleepy neighbourhood of Pek Kio that has seen a fair number of cafes move in and out over the years — somewhere we would most certainly think about for some good gelato in the area with some really homely vibes to be felt; wishing the folks behind Days of Elijah Gelato all the best in what is to come in the future!

Nestled opposite Pek Kio Market is this humble ice-cream shop. It carries locally-inspired flavours like pulut hitam, hawthorn (san zha) and pandan kaya, as well as a range of sorbets that are all made with fresh ingredients, not canned. They also have a few newer flavours like biscoff and dark chocolate, to cater to both the younger and more traditional crowd☺️ Love the owners, who are super friendly. Do head on down to support this shop! They are open till late almost everyday, even later on weekends🙊
