Tom Sawyer’s Old Fashioned Krispy Chicken is Back

By |2021-02-15T08:11:35+00:00February 15th, 2021|News from around the web|

Once upon a time, my parents would drive all the way to Tagaytay once a week for Tom Sawyer’s Old Fashioned Krispy Chicken. There I was in the backseat, wondering why the hell they would drive so far just for some freaking fried chicken and why we couldn’t just get a bucket of KFC. When you’re 6 years old, everything that makes a shattering, crunchy sound is deemed delicious. Anything fatty and oily is instantly approved by juvenile taste buds. That—and all things sweet.

The story will start with the numerous dates they’ve had in a red-and-white-clad Tom Sawyer’s store, how they would forget their fights as they tore through the chicken, and how they eventually brought me, their tiny bundle of pride and joy, where I threw a tantrum (according to my mum) because I thought my chicken didn’t have enough skin. Fast forward to now when Tom Sawyer’s Old Fashioned Krispy Chicken has reopened at Tiendesitas. My [...]

The Best Chicken in Manila That You Haven’t Tried Yet – Tom Sawyer on EsquireMag

By |2021-02-15T07:57:27+00:00February 15th, 2021|News from around the web|

Thirty years ago, in pre-McDonald's Philippines, Tom Sawyer was an ultra-popular fast-food chain in Metro Manila. Chef Eli Aurelio used old recipes from 19th-century Mississippi and cooked his chickens to craggy, homespun perfection, naming his work after Mark Twain's poultry-loving hero. The perfectly fried batter is just the right amount of salty, and, more important, it seeps right down to the chicken meat (yes, even the breast).
