Sure, there’s no shortage of options if you’re looking for a place to eat on the way between Melbourne and Mornington, but one place guaranteed to satisfy all members of a travelling party is Papa’s Rich Noodle in Frankston. The reasons are simple – prices are good, food is great, and options are even greater. Running the gamut of Malaysian cuisine, with plenty of Thai and Chinese influences included along the way, Papa’s Rich Noodle provides just the ticket for eaters fussy or otherwise. Spice nuts are spoilt for choice, with Szechuan chicken perhaps the obvious go-to, but you needn’t be a connoisseur or a chilli-lover to appreciate succulent, mellow roast duck noodles, while vegetarians have no end to their choices, from rich curries to light dim sum. Found just off the beach on Wells Street, the affordability and accessibility of Papa’s Rich Noodle is no secret in Frankston and it can fill up, so best to reserve a spot ahead, especially if you’re travelling and time is precious.
