Mexico City - the Azcapotzalco district …has anyone visited?

Hello all,

We are going to Mexico City this February (and also Puebla and Oaxaca) and I am interested in this district, Azcapotzalco. We have visited Mexico City many times and have visited most of the main sights so I want to go farther afield.

I first came across this area when I stumbled across Rick Stein’s TV food travel segment on Mexico City, which covered this neighborhood. I confess I had never heard of Rick Stein but he’s sort of an Anthony Bourdain (RIP) commentator. From his show and from web surfing, here are some of the things that look interesting:

=>El Dux de Venecia: Stein praises this cantina and counsels us to order a “limon preparado” of vodka, lemon syrup and mint (that alone sounds like it’s worth the trip). They also, says he, provide a multitude of tasty antojitos at the bar.
=>Church and Monastery of Apostles Philip and James: right on the main square of the district; the structure goes way back, built by the Dominicans in the 1500s.

The district was the capital of the Tepanec people, who arrived here before the Aztecs.

Has anyone visited this area? Any impressions, suggestions? Thanks in advance.
