Is there some difference in these phrases or not?

tasty dishes


delicious meals

Maybe "delicious meals" are more tasty than "tasty dishes"?

Are "Dishes" and "meals" absolutely interchangeable in this context?


'Tasty' is informal, casual or conversational; 'delicious' is more formal. A meal may consist of one or more dishes - a meal of soup, curry and rice, and pudding is a meal of three dishes.
