“Heritage” Gelato Parlour Serves Nostalgic Flavours Like Haw Flakes & Lemon Puff Inspired By Khong Guan’s Biscuits
After going through a “midlife crisis”, 42-year-old Elijah Tan quit his job as a landscape architect to open a cosy 12-seat gelato parlour on Owen Road in Little India.
The days of designing a building’s outdoor areas like ponds and pavilions are now replaced by churning gelato in flavours like pulut hitam and haw flakes (those petite pink discs made from hawthorn berries we used to sneak into class as kids). Two-month-old parlour Days of Elijah Gelato – named for a song title that includes the towkay’s moniker – also serves crowd-pleasers like cookies & cream or dark chocolate sorbet. It’s open till 11pm daily and midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
