The force behind the kitchen of Charleston’s beloved former Ma’am Saab pop up at Workshop, and now first-ever Pakistani restaurant to grace the state, Malika, Maryam, along with her husband, Co-Owner and Creative Director Raheel Gauba, are bringing a taste of Pakistan culture and cuisine to the Lowcountry.
Born in Pakistan, food was the center of the Ghaznavi household as Maryam’s mother, grandmother and sister all cooked Pakistani food. Maryam as the “chief taste tester” grew such a love for her culture’s staple dishes like Biryanis, Karahis, Saags and Kababs, and through many hours spent in the kitchen, became a chef herself.
