The hour is fast approaching. After weeks — months — of teasing, the first T&T in Montreal is set to open on December 15.

It will be the Canadian Asian grocery store chain's first location in Quebec and the largest by area in the country.

Here's what we know so far about the food that'll be available at Montreal's T&T.

What food will the T&T Montreal have?

In a January 2022 interview with MTL Blog, T&T CEO Tina Lee said the store will have a snack aisle, an in-store bakery (with cakes she said are "less sweet than the typical supermarket cake"), fresh seafood (from "a row of fish tanks that have enough water in them to fill your backyard swimming pool") and locally rare produce.

That snack aisle will have chips galore. Lee listed flavours like scallops, salted egg yolk, and wasabi.

The company is particularly hyping its hot food stations.

"Montreal, this is going to be a new shopping experience for you — no more struggles on what to eat for dinner because we have everything you've been craving at the most affordable price!" the company wrote on Instagram on November 16. It promised "daily freshly made Asian cuisine," including spicy mapo tofu, sweet and sour pork and Sichuan-style fish fillet.

"When you walk into a T&T store, I want to smack you in the face with freshness and abundance and amazing ingredients that you couldn't buy at your typical" grocery store, Lee said in January.

When is T&T Montreal opening?

At 9 a.m. on December 15.

To celebrate, the store is planning giveaways for its first customers, including $10 gift cards for the first 100 T&T rewards program members to enter the store, free reusable shopping bags with purchases of $68 or more, and $10 coupons with purchases of $88 or more.

Montreal's T&T will be located at 300, avenue Sainte-Croix in Saint-Laurent.
