In my experience, we often say "plate" instead of "dish." So, in my humble opinion, "are you trying this plate" should be accepted.

Sooo. This might be obvious. But what situation would you say this?

You're at a party where there's a buffet. The hosts have prepared food from all over the world, and you're wondering what most of it is: ostrich? termites? worms? kangaroo? Your friend asks you: "Are you trying this dish?"

Ok, that makes sense. I don't know why I was having such a hard time wrapping my head around it. Thank you.

For me dish is a plate without food when it is full or contain something like a crab it is a plate. I could be wrong

A dish can refer either to the thing food is served in or on, a plate or a bowl are could collectively be referred to as dishes. But dish can also refer to food that has been prepared in some sense. Plato seems to work for both.

In other lessons, this would be "can you try this dish", but that doesn't work here. BTW, as a native American English speaker, dish makes more sense than plate.

I agree that "Are you trying this plate?" should be accepted. Expression very commonly used in US.

I don't usually eat plates, but my favorite ones are the paper plates.
