Experimenting with foods from all over the world is easy with secure, comfortable dentures. Take a look at our list of lesser-known delicacies for your next trip.

With cheaper travel making the world more connected than ever, there’s been a real explosion in culinary experimentation.

It seems not so long ago that most towns and cities might have a French, Italian, Chinese and Indian restaurant – but that’s as far as it went.

Now we’re getting used to ever more adventurous tastes, from sushi to the fiery cooking of China’s Szechuan region, from Mexican tacos to Korean kimchi. So whether you’re heading to your nearest city centre, or travelling to the other side of the globe, it’s always worth taking your taste buds on a journey too.

It’s easier to explore when you’re feeling confident, however. When you’re getting used to dentures, it can make you wonder what foods are safe to eat.

With Fixodent, you don’t need to worry. It creates an unbeatable hold so your dentures stay in place while you eat, preventing food from getting trapped so you can travel and enjoy the local delicacies without a care.

Take a look at our list of lesser-known treats to try on your next voyage.

Ganjang gejang

This Korean dish dates back to at least the 1600s, and its name means “crabs marinated in soy sauce”.

That marinade is the key to this intense, complex dish: ingredients include onions, garlic, ginger, chilli, apple and water. Popular tradition holds that it’s good for driving away spring fever.

Lángos

One of the most popular fast foods in Hungary, this deep-fried flatbread isn’t exactly the healthiest way to sate your hunger, but it’s might be one of the tastiest.

The golden yellow flatbread is often rubbed with garlic, then topped with sour cream and grated cheese – either way, it’s always eaten fresh and warm.

Saltah

Yemeni food merges together the culinary traditions of the Turkish Ottoman Empire and the Indian Mughal Empire, and saltah is the national dish.

It consists of a rich meat stew called maraq, topped with a fenugreek paste called halbah and zhug, a hot sauce made with coriander and chilli peppers. It is traditionally eaten with Yemeni flat bread.

Quindim

This is Brazil’s national dessert, an intensely yellow baked custard made from sugar, egg yolks and ground coconut.

Often presented in a doughnut shape with a glistening, golden yellow surface. Beware, it’s highly addictive!
