Tiliacora triandra is a species of flowering plant native to mainland Southeast Asia and used particularly in the cuisines of northeast Thailand and Laos. In the Lao language it is called bai yanang or bai ya nang (literally "yanang leaf"), or simply yanang or ya nang (ย่านาง). It is a climbing plant with deep green leaves and yellowish flowers.
In Vietnam, the plant is called dây sương sâm. Although it is not as popular a food as in Laos, the leaves are occasionally eaten. In Cambodia, it is used as an ingredient in a sour soup called Samlar machu.
