by at . Comments

That Taylor Swift, she's good people.

Following a concert with Ed Sheeran and Austin Mahone last Friday, the singer and her tour mates stopped for a meal at Ralph's Italian Restaurant in Philadelphia.

Turns out, the head chef of that establishment is a man named Shawn Gallo and he's a HUGE Taylor Swift fan.

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

Upon learning this story, Swift shocked Gallo by giving him two tickets to the following evening's show - and then she left him a $500 tip!

"It was so kind-hearted of her," the chef said after the experience. "My son Shawnee is 11. It was my son and I's first concert we've ever been to! It was really special."

So much for Taylor Swift being Satan, huh?
