I love fried chicken (who doesn’t?). That’s why I was ecstatic when I discovered this awesome fried chicken joint at the ground floor of Tiendesitas, it’s called Tom Sawyer’s Old Fashioned Krispy Chicken. The fried chicken was fanstastic. And believe me, once you tried it, you’re gonna ask for more. In fact, I had been here for thrice for the past two months.

Tom Sawyer’s serve fried chicken, spaghetti and french fries just like the other fast food joints here in the Philippines. The place was small but always almost full during lunch or dinner.

When you go here, never miss to order their fried chicken. Similar to other fried chicken resto, you get to choose either to have 1-piece or 2-piece chicken meal that comes with a cup of white rice. For two-piece chicken (Php 145.00), you’ll either have thigh and wing, or breast and leg.

The sizes of the two pieces of chicken that came with my order were average. It also came with a small container filled with thick gravy.

I fell in love with the ear-splitting crispiness of the chicken skin with every bite. Not only that, the meat was so juicy that I really instantly became a fan. It bore the fried chicken classic and amazing flavor. The thick buttery gravy added a nice twist to it.

For the same price (Php 145.00), you may enjoy your fried chicken with spaghetti instead of rice. However, for chicken, you may only have either the wing or the leg part.

All Beef Spaghetti

Or, you may order the All Beef Spaghetti ala carte just for Php 92.00.

The resto’s spaghetti was flavorful. It was sweet and literally meaty – a lot of ground beef with every bite. However, it was a little too salty.

You may also opt to add a side dish: either french fries (Php 38.00) or corn bread (Php 28.00 per piece).

The fries was crispy and plain salty just like other ordinary fries. But the corn bread was incredible good. It was so soft and full of corn flavors.
