Bistro Charlemagne in Nuvali: A Concept By Little Asia
If you happen to know Little Asia back in 2001, then you’ll surely love their newly improved concept that is Bistro Charlemagne; a taste of Asian fusion with a hint of Western cuisines. Named after the owner, Mr. Charlemagne Lim, this restaurant gives you a historic and flavorful selection of mixed cuisines with 40% of the dishes from Little Asia and 60%, newly invented dishes.
Back in 2001, when not a single restaurant was serving Asian fusion with Western dishes, they decided to mix up everything and come up with ‘Little Asia’. By 2015, they decided to create a new concept and called it Bistro Charlemagne: A Concept by Little Asia.
