Believe it or not, I have begun creating day-to-day itinerary whenever we fly back to Manila. Every minute is precious and can never be wasted not doing anything. Of course, we have to make sure that we have set aside ample time to bond with our families too. For this particular trip, Paul had to go to LTO to have his driver's license renewed. Since we went right on the last work day before Christmas Day, we were greeted with a shockingly long queue and what used to just be an hour-long processing time took us almost half a day.
Look how big and crispy looking my chicken is! It literally glows in the sunlight and I just loved the crackling sound as I slice through it. The meat was tender and very juicy too. However, what won my heart was the old-fashioned gravy. It has this creamy, mushroom flavor that was so yummy when scooped onto my rice and all over my chicken. They actually charge for extra gravy but we're lucky that our kind server gave us a bit more.

It was a quick, affordable lunch that we both enjoyed. This delightful experience has truly made up for the blurry memory that I once had about Tom Sawyer's Chicken. Happy to have it back in Manila and I hope they'll expand soon.
Tom Sawyer's Chicken is located at Building A, Stall # 1-A Tiendesitas, Ortigas Avenue corner E. Rodriguez (C-5) in Pasig City.
