Canteen and Champor-Champor restaurants won the cooked breakfast and curry categories of the UK Best Dishes competition run by Restaurant magazine.

Canteen – which this year opened a branch at the Royal Festival Hall – won the cooked breakfast category with its bacon, bubble and squeak, and fried egg. The Garrison in Bermondsey Street was a runner-up in the same category.

The satay-marinated lamb neck fillet in lotus root korma curry with pickled water chestnuts served at Champor-Champor in Weston Street also impressed the judges, with the popular eatery topping the curry category.

Roast in Borough Market was a runner-up in the awards' roast beef category.
"The competition is really important to chefs, and we receive entries from humble pubs, Michelin-starred celebrity spots and everything in between," explains Paul Wootton, editor of Restaurant magazine. "It truly puts the chefs' artistry in the spotlight and is a great showcase for the culinary talent we have across the UK."

Restaurant magazine is the only dedicated restaurant magazine in the UK and has been running the awards for three years.
