Elfav is the ice creamery of El Favorito Ice Cream, which uses skim milk from New Zealand. I can understand why they need to have different strong flavors because the skim milk has a distinct aftertaste. You’ll first encounter the flavor of the ice cream and then the sweet lingering aftertaste.
Ever since Jayvee raved about the Yakult Ice Cream and Beer Ice Cream from Elfav in BF, this was already on top of my blogging list for when we visit the BF area.
The Beer Ice Cream, which uses lager beer, tastes awful. The Malunggay Ice Cream is interesting because it looks like mint but tastes like actual malunggay. The kids love the blue Bubblegum Ice Cream. Unfortunately, the Yakult Ice Cream was out of stock when we visited.
We had a hard time finding it because it is located on the second floor of the new Pergola Mall, near the original Conti’s area. The signage is not visible from the streets so just park in the mall and go to the second floor. It is located on top of Kopi Roti.
You can play traditional board games in Elfav, including Chess…
Snakes and Ladders… (I still remember playing this when I was a kid)
and Tic Tac Toe. We went out with our college barkada Clare, who patiently taught the new generation how to play the classic games.
Elfav also serves affordable meals (see Elfav Menu) but it is more famous for its unique ice cream flavors.
I can’t wait for the Robinson’s Galleria branch to open soon after the flagship store in BF.
