From December 5 to January 5, the 13 eateries at Time Out Market Montréal—home to some of the best chefs and restaurants in the city under one roof—will offer special dishes and drinks combining tradition and originality with a modern twist, and unbeatable holiday vibes (cue the Marché de Noël Signé Local, Montreal’s massive downtown Christmas market.

Think a spiced gingerbread latte (that will even charm those who don't like flavoured coffee); fresh pasta with an addictive savoury duck ragu; fall-off-the-bone chicken simmered in red wine or a succulent lamb burger smothered in cranberry chutney.

Don’t forget the kid’s menu—we’re talking about the best fried chicken sandwich and mini-ramen in town—available for brunch on weekends only.

But don’t just take our word for it. Here's the complete list of holiday menu items that will be served for a limited time only.

Tunnel Espresso

What: Gingerbread Latte
The Market's espresso bar will be pouring gingerbread lattes—not too sweet, with a good dose of spice. Will yours be made with regular, oat, soy or almond milk?
