Taylor Swift gave a head chef at a restaurant in Philadelphia two tickets to her concert and a big tip.

According to an article in The Straits Times Communities, Swift and her tour mates, Ed Sheeran and Austin Mahone, were craving some late-night Italian after their show, and headed to Ralph's Italian Restaurant.

The head chef immediately called his mother.

"I called my mom to tell her Swift was there, and she wanted me to take a picture because she is a big fan," he told E! News.

"My son has autism, and while I'm at work my mom and my son love to listen to her music. He loves her music!"

Swift took pictures with the staff. She handed over two tickets to her concert for the following night, and left a US$500 (S$634) tip.

"It was so kind-hearted of her," the chef told E! News, adding that it's his and his 11-year-old son's first concert together. "It was really special."
