I just wrapped up a wonderful flight on Qatar in Qsuites from DOH-JFK and was served an amazing Hermolis breakfast. (The main meal and snack were also very good, but the breakfast was something else!)

The whole meal was incredibly delicious and the service on QR was top-notch

Menu:
Smoked salmon, cream cheese, assorted hard cheeses, pickle and olive
Eggs, baked beans, fired tomato & mushrooms and potato rosti
Corn flakes
Yogurt and granola
Fruit
Jam, honey, cream cheese, butter and margarine
Orange juice and fruit yogurt smoothie
Bagel croissant, cinnamon danish and Melba toast

I got the same breakfast as both of you in CX F HKG-JFK, it was excellent. Snack was pretty measly though, some sliced turkey with coleslaw IIRC.

The bread/pastry part of the snack was great, as it got warmed up.

The roast beef sandwiches weren’t any good at all. Was served defrosted with the bread being soggy water-soaked.

Ah, that's unfortunate, I was surprised that there was a snack at all so I was happy to have something to eat. I also had the heated up bread with breakfast and supper which was great.

September 2018:

DL JFK-LAX ; LAX-JFK

Y Class

Borenstein Tuna Sandwich + 1 rugaluch

Non-kosher plates looked amazing - you'd think a better sandwich for kosher could have been arranged...
